    Hello, recently I was messing around with my folder options and i came along the file types in the folders options, as you can see there are many registered file types below, anyway on that list I went along to "File Folders" and I was messing around with it, then i went to the advanced menu and see commands there for stuff...I touched something and now i cant get my folders opening normal.. Its like my folder is opening to another path, how can i set it back to the normal way it was so it can open my folders right again? Thanks.

    You can go back into the Folder's Opitions, click on Folders. then click the Advance button. Check Explore box and OK on out. Other than that, I don't understand what else you could have done.

    this is all under file folders, I think i need to make a new path or something that says to make it so it goes by folder to folder, because if i double click on my folder now the search window opens up instead o_O

    Is this XP? If so, run System Restore back to date BEFORE you made this change. This is the quickest way to fix your problem without screwing something else up. :D
