OpenFileDialog and File Explorer

the dotnet OpenFileDialog brings up a window that looks
similar to a File Explorer window, and indeed depending
on some user settings may list files in a details view,
thumbnails view etc.

Is there some property to set so that this may be done by
my app rather than depending on whatever state the user
left? for instance, can i force OpenFileDialog to give
the user thumbnails when the dialog is shown? a similar
question would be how to control the list of folders that
appear on the bar on the left of the dialog when it is

Thanks in advance.

Everything I've read so far states you can't inherit or extend these dialogs because they're "sealed". I considered building my own custom control, but I haven't been able to find: 1) How to add a "Places Bar" to a form 2) How to hook a Combo Box into System locations like the existing OpenFileDialog / SaveFileDialog offer (ie. "My Recent Documents", "Desktop", etc.)

I'm trying to be able to select a combination of files and folders. When I try to use the OpenFileDialog it will allow me to select them but when I press the Open button it only informs me of the files I chose not the folders as well? Am I missing something?

I am having a weird problem and I have can't figure out why it is happening. I create an OpenFileDialog and set a filename filter. When the dialog first opens, the filter works correctly, and only the files I want to see appear in the file list box. When I change the filter to one of the other filters, all the files in the list disappear. If I then manually type a filter into the "Filename" textbox, then the files appear and the filter...

OpenFileDialog appears to be "holding onto" the parent folder of a selected file until the application using the dialog quits.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
