    Ok, how I did this is beyond me.

    So I'm messing with random icons, making them pretty and silver, and I notice that after changing the icon for my drives and folders... They all open with ACDSee now...

    Plight.

    I looked in the settings, and noticed that "explore" was the command used to generically open a folder, but it won't let me edit it to see what the context is... I set one to "explore" using "explorer.exe", and that almost worked, if not for the fact that it opens a new window for each folder, and I can't :stand: that...

    Any ideas on the context of the explore command, or other general fixes?

    :)


    ::edit::
    more general messing with has revealed that "open" using "explorer.exe" also works.. I'm assuming there's just some sort of hyphen variable that I need to include to make it open in the same window?
    Well.. Ok, noticed the option in the bottom of the config window, but it's greyed... more edits as I notice the obvious.

    I didn't understand anything!
    do you want to open your drive with Explorer?
    go to TOOLS>>>>Folder Options>>>File Tabs.

    Try this:-
    Open up you registry and go to these two places:-

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

    and double-click the (Default) in the right hand side and type:-

    none
