Thanks for your suggestion. I didn’t think to look at that because I have been used to seeing the Windows Vista and XP file dialogs for so long and those ones do expand, but there is no left pane when it is a directory browsing dialog. Therefore, I looked at the way it works in Visual Studio, and you are absolutely correct! Visual Studio does the exact same thing, which makes sense since they both use native dialogs. This is not a Qt bug, but in my opinion, a Windows bug. Thank you for your response!

...QFileDialog::getExistingDirectory(…) and pass in a default directory to open to, the native dialog does open to the correct directory. However, the tree in the left-hand pane of the Windows dialog does not expand to that location.
Uhm... even though I am using Win 7 as a daily development platform since beginning of this year: is the file dialog actually /supposed/ to expand the left side? What do other non-Qt apps do?
