The Move Items and Copy Items dialog boxes always show un-expanded PST/folder trees when you open Outlook (at least until version 2013). Is there any way to have them display the structure expanded as it was in previous session?

No, not that i know of.

Mine have the default data file open to the first level (subfolders not expanded) and other data files closed. it looks like expanding a folder for one move command keeps it expanded for additional moves during that session. (I have a bazillion data files - i prefer all being closed)

Yes, the expansions stay for the duration of the session, and then they're closed again. I'd like it to be preserved between sessions for about the same reason you prefer it closed - to avoid having to wade through the folder structure later on. Oh well.

I don't even know of a way to expand it using VBA. :(
