    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...


    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?


    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.
