    You can do this. From the menu "View", You choose "Always Show Folders". And then, in "Name Filters", You choose to exclude "*" files. It should show what You want.


    To ScooterSoftware. Is it possible to add the "Name Filters" to menu "View"?

    Thank you very much, Rodolfo!

    Yes, that works, great. It appears, I can use different / all views besides of those ones:

    You are right, from the menu "View" You can choose also "Compare Files and Folder Structure".
    But, at least on my laptop, if I choose "Only Compare Files", when I open a folder it disappears.
    And, if I choose "Ignore Folder Structure", it opens all folders and then everything disappears.
    So, You may want to experiment with these settings.

    Yes, the same here, with those two views folders are not shown, I would say.

    Yes, experimenting is a good idea.

    Name Filters tab is directly on the toolbar as the Filters: *.* box. Any edits to here update Name Filters, and vice versa.

    We also have a Show None display filter you can enable in the Tools menu -> Options dialog, Toolbars/etc, Text Compare: Show None. This would act similar to the -*.* filter to hide files, in combination with Always Show Folders would show just folders.

    If you still have -*.* or Show None enabled and you then set to Only Show Files, this will remove all the folders from view because they are all 'empty' because of your filter.
