Either from My Computer or shortcuts on my desktop, if I double-click on a hard disk icon, it does not open up to the hard drive window, it opens up to the Search window.

If I right-click on the hard drive icon, the sequence of the order is Search, Open, Explore, System Information etc...

The question is: How do I change the sequence so that when I double click, I can gain access to the hard drive window. If I double click on a folder containing files, that will open properly, but the icons for my three hard disk drives do not. Thanks for you help.
