Hello all:
I need some help with some odd behavior in Windows Explorer. When I double-click on folders in the navigation pane (left pane) it behaves as expected, the clicked folder appears on the right-hand pane. But if I double-click on a folder in the right-hand pane, a new window pops up with the words "search results" in the address bar at the top. It does not show the folder contents in the original window (Windows Explorer). I am forced to use the left-hand pane to navigate.

One thing that may be related to this issue: in addition to Windows Explorer, I use Xplorer2. I think this has something to do with my problem. On the toolbar in Windows Explorer there is a menu labeled "search" with the Xplorer2 icon. Upon clicking it, the same "search results" window pops up.

So, is there anyone out there that can help me with this?

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

Not sure why you're running both explorers particularly if you are now on Windows 7.
Suggest you take Xplorer2 off your PC and see if the issue is resolved.

Hello:
Actually, I wound up fixing the problem. It was that Xplorer2 was set to serve as a replacement for Windows Explorer. Reinstalled it and everything was perfect. I love Xplorer2, and use it every day on Windows 7. Sure Windows Explorer has made leaps and bounds, but I still have a soft spot for Xplorer2.
