    I must have messed up my setting somehow, because I don't think this has always been the case. In Windows Explorer, if I right-click on a file, all is well. However, if I right-click on a folder, my first option is Search rather than Open, which means that when I double-click on a folder, it opens up a Search window instead of opening up the folder. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Try this:-
    Open up you registry and go to these two places:-

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell

    and double-click the (Default) in the right hand side and type:-
    none
