  1. Hi Sergey,
    I added a parent folder to the navigation pane using navigation pane – custom items option.
    However I do not want the parent folder to have the expand option (the blue arrow prefixed to the right of the folder name) . Is there an option to just show the parent folder as a plain folder and disable the option to expand?

  2. why does this article say there is nothing new on the c onsumer side?

    22h2 installed or perhaps just made start COPILOT.
    I have seen nothing about this piece of AI garbage.
