I'm running Windows ME and when I try to open a generic folder it goes to the pick a program to open with box. I can open it if I right click and choose open or explore but not by double clicking. In the folder options box under file types it has the folder listed with the extension N/A and I can't choose change to pick the program to open it with.

If you need more info please let me know.

Thanks,
Ronyace :confused:

A folder "opens with" Explorer but the freaky part for me is that you say folders will still open if you right click>open, but just not using the mouse. So that means that folders are still associated with explorer for the "open" command. So, try when you left click choosing "Explorer" when windows gives you the "open with..." question.

I tried to open with Explorer after double clicking but the explorer option was not listed. I browsed to it and opened the folder fine. After closing the folder and then double clicking again, it would not open. Usually the file type will remember the program used to open it but this did not.
I think there is a missing folder extension for the folders but I don't know what extension a folder would have. The my documents folder opens fine and it has an extension of mydoc.
Thanks
