PSE version 8 had the ability to view subfolders in the Organizer by default. If they were not visible, I could click Edit > Preferences > Folder Location View and then clear "Show Files: Only Files in the Selected Folder". This feature has been removed in version 12, making it impossible to view the subfolder's contents.This is extremely important, because without being able to see a folder and it's subfolders, organizing becomes too difficult, and it is just easier to switch to another product, like Corel.

Assuming that I understand, then I agree!
I believe that most people have an organization in mind when they create a folder structure for their photos.  Whether it is by time (e.g. <decade>,<year>, <date-event>), or by topic (e.g. <animals>,<birds>,<people>,<buildings>,<vehicles>,<landscape>,<seascape>,<underwater>,etc.), or whatever - it is an organization meaningful to the user. 

When in Folder Tree View, it would be extremely useful if I could select any folder in the tree and have displayed all photos in it and in all sub-folders contained in that sub-tree. 

As an easy to visualize example, if I select the folder "1990s" I'd like displayed all the photos in it, and the photos in the sub-folders 1990,1991, 1993, ..., 1999 and all their sub-folders.  Or if I select the folder "Genealogy" I'll see all the photos in it and the sub-folders "Mother", "Father", "Census Pages", "Graveyards", etc.

Is there a way to 'get a link' to a post or to a thread, so that it can be referenced in another post?  Maybe I am staring right at it, but am just not seeing it.
Hmmm, the time-of-post seems to be a link.  Is that the link to the post itself?
Where, then, is the link to the thread?  that is, to the first post? 
Thanks,
