Hi, a colleague of mine has the following problem: In windows explorer every folder that she tries to open, opens in a NEW WINDOW. I checked the Folder Options and it's set to "Open each folder in the same window". I have no other clue why it happens so. Could you give me any advice? Thanks a lot! :thumbsup:

PS: She's using Windows XP Professional 2002

Hi. Please download and install the program Registry Lite from here:

http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

Once it is installed, please double click on the icon that should now be on your desktop. If an icon is not there, then check under programs portion of the Start Menu.

Once it is opened, copy and paste the below line, into the address field of Registrar Lite.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory

And press enter. You will now be presented with new information in the bottom right and left sections and on the right section.

Right click on directory and export it to directory.reg as a registry file.

Do the same thing for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder

THen open both files with notepad and paste the contents as a reply.

Try this.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
Change the default key to contain the word none

In this key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell
Remove the open word from the default key and keep blank

I fixed what you told me. The result: Windows explorer stalled (in grey), but after reopening it, the problems seems almost fixed, except when you double click (open) an icon under "My Computer" Folder - it still opens it in a new window. Every other folder seems to work as requested :thumbsup:

Export this key for me:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Im not sure if I am going to fix this one.
