Obsidian folders will not open

Before opening a new bug report, please search the forum for duplicates and follow the Troubleshooting Guide.

  • We only consider bugs that are reproducible in the sandbox vault or a vault with no third-party plugins/no css snippets/default theme.
  • For Linux, we only accept bug reports that are reproducible with our Appimage package under Gnome or KDE.

Additional information

Can you not open a folder or a page as in a file?
