Is there a way to hide folders and display files only?

In the below example, just show the files

I want to hide only the foldersnames, but the files should still be displayed...

A bit like this.

Sorry, that doesn't work, at least not with me. Then -nothing- is displayed, folders including their files are gone.
Probably what I want isn't possible yet.

Ah, I see what is meant... leads to the confusion.

I meant something different:
say you have folder
01
02
03

They contain images.
Right now you have to open folder 01 to see them, then folder 02, to see the images in that folder, etc.

But imagine the situation where the folders (01,02,03) are hidden but the files are displayed.
So, in my example (see earlier screenshot) the folder
America - Panoramic
China by Night
etc.
they are hidden, but the files in those folders, they are displayed.

A kind of 'show files only' (suppress foldernames)

Thanks for the solution, it is the button
show files in subfolders

I overlooked that one all the time.. or better, I didn't know it was there, else I would not have asked... :D
That is indeed the option I was looking for.
Super!

oh, yes, edited reply ,

Another way is to right-click on the parent folder in "Folders" pane. You will find "show all files(recursive)"
