How do I stop Atom from automatically adding folders to the tree view?


#1

It seems that automation is ever my opponent. Atom keeps adding folders to the tree view without my having asked it to. How can I prevent that?

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Run atom ~/.gitconfig.

Expected behavior:

  • Atom opens ~/.gitconfig.

Actual behavior:

  • Atom opens ~/.gitconfig.
  • Atom automatically adds my entire home folder to the tree view.

Please note that I’m not asking how to disable the tree view altogether; I just want it to stop taking action on wrong assumptions.
