Every time i click on a folder, instead of opening up it brings up the windows search tool in a new window, how can i stop this? Thanks

Under Folder options, choose File Folder.
Set it to open with explorer.exe
Set it as the default action.

EDIT - better description ....

Select Tools -> Folder Options, and click on the File Types
tab. Under the Extensions column on the left, scroll down
to the N/A section and find the entry for Folder.

Highlight the Folder entry (not the File Folder entry),
and click on the Advanced button at the bottom right.
In that window you should see the three actions: Cmd Here,
Explore, and Open. Highlight the action Open, and click on
the Set Default button. Click OK through all the windows
you have open, in the process of closing them.

This should reset Open as the default action when you are
double-clicking a folder in the right-hand Explorer window.

BTW Wills, welcome to the forum.

Sure man. Under the same section - Folder Options...

Click on the 'View' tab. You will see several options in a window.... with various checked, and unchecked items. Scroll through the list, you will see the following option.

"Launch folder windows in a separate process" Uncheck it, and hit apply.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
