How Do I Collapse The File Listing?

Quite often, I use the "select recently modified" file to update the website.  When it runs, it expands every directory on the website, so the list gets to be very long.    

 

I need to figure out how to COLLAPSE the list after the files are uploaded.  Now, I have to go manually though each directory containing a highlighted file and click on the directory name to collapse the listing back to something small.

I've never found an automated method to do what you're looking for.

I don't think one exists within DW.

Hope that helps.

That collapses it into ONE item but when I OPEN it, the subdirectors are still expanded.  I was looking for a command that would COLLAPSE all directories in the site at once I would see the site and the top directories.  Thank you for the try; sure would be a helpful feature!

Use Ctrl + Click twice.  It really does work. See screencast.

Hmmm, interesting...

For me, in Windows 10, DW 21.1 15413, it just closes the site folder and on Ctrl+Clicking again, reopens the site folder with all sub folders set the way they were before collapsing, as @pliles noted.

In W10, DW 2015, it collapses the site folder and on ctrl+clicking again, expands ALL sub folders when the site folder expands. Continued ctrl+clicking just expands/collapses the site folder with no change in sub folders (all remain expanded).

No wonder I never found it before, that's extremely counter-intuitive. That's got to be a hold over from the Macromedia days. I never could get the hang of their interfaces.

This works for me in both CC2015 and CC 21.1

Ctrl + Click the site folder's chevron to collapse it (with, presumably, some sub folders expanded) then a standard click of the chevron to expand the site folder with all sub folders collapsed.

Ctrl + click the site folder chevron twice to expand all folders. 
Ctrl + click a third time to collapse it followed by a standard click to expand with all sub folders collapsed

@Jon Fritz ,

Photoshop uses Alt + Click  to show / hide all Layers and another one with Alt + Ctrl + Click to collapse all Fx.   I think it's been there for a decade, maybe longer.   Perhaps that's why I could find it in DW.

 

@pliles,

On Mac it's probably Cmd + Click or possibly some other key + click. If it works on Windows it should work on a Mac, too.

Dang, I thought we had it this time but alas, when I use the CONTROL-Click on the chevron,  I get a "tooltip" or drop-down box containing the same thing as when I right-click the entire folder line?   I am using release 20.1 Build 15211.
