    I was just changing some folder icons in Folder Options>File Types and now when I click on a folder it opens in OneNote!

    I went to File Types>File Folder>Advanced and under the Actions it reads:
    Add to VLC
    find
    Lock folder with Folder Lock
    Open as Notebook in OneNote
    Play with VLC

    The first two of the 3 check boxes underneath are ticked. I have no idea what the default action was before, but I don't see anything resembling simply open a folder. Can anyone help me reset the default action or create a new one to open the folder?

    Thanks very much.

    You may want to do a System Restore to a point where you weren't "playing".
