I'd be inclined to avoid naming the view. Just describe what it
provides. Along the lines of "On the left side of the window, click the
triangles to view or hide the contents of each folder." If you feel
compelled to explain that folders can be nested, then add an additional
sentence to that affect, but I wonder that it might not be necessary at
all, depending on the context of the task you're describing.
