The title pretty much says it all...
In windows explorer if I double click on a folder it opens the search window instead of opening the folder. To open a folder I have to right click, then click on 'open'. Does anyone know how to fix this?

The easiest way to restore the folder opening action would be to download this script. Just save it to a temporary folder and double click it. That should be all.

Hope that helps.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
