    Howdy, folks.
    I right click a link (.lnk), click Properties, then click "Find Target" and instead of folder with the target opening an Open With box opens. It has several programs suggested, but not explorer.exe. I have to browse for explorer.exe.

    How do I fix this problem?

    Tufenuf, The file associations didn't work. Could it be some service disabled or manual causing it?

    Phantom, this worked: Registry key "Folder" in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder

    And I don't see any items missing from right click menu. I just did it a minute ago and prToblem solved. Thank you. The Phantom was one of my comic favs. Thank you.

    The Doug Knox folder reg fixed it.
