Windows 7: How to Open a Folder in a New Process

Windows Explorer normally opens all folders within a single process. While you could change this via the Folder Options, it would cause all folders to open in new processes. Windows 7 allows you to easily select a single folder and run it in a different process.

1. Find the desired folder.

2. Hold down the Shift key and then right-click the folder.

3. From the resulting context menu, select Open in New Process.
