    Got a strange problem that popped up recently.

    When I am in windows explorer and my drive letters are in the right side pane of the window...(IE clicking on My Computer in the left pane shows all drive in the right pane..) Instead of opening up that drive's folders, it pops up the search window.

    Before I had just clicked on the drive and it expanded out and you could click on the files on that drive.

    Anyone know what might cause this to change or what I can do to change it back?

    Not a major issue, but it's puzzling as to how it got that way.

    Thanks in advance...
