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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
