    When I click on important files such as the E or F drives (flash drives) or my external hard drive, instead of opening in the file folder, it automatically opens the search window. Where is the 'little box' that shows the parameters of opening these files? I think it is in 'Folder Options' somewhere. I click any drive or most main folders and the Windows Search box opens up.
