    On my new Win/XP/Pro installation, when I open up Windows Explorer in the "My Computer" view, I get the expected listing of drive A (floppy), drive C ("local disk"), drive D (Data), Drive E (DVD-RAM), etc.

    However, when I open drive D, it creates a new window. So I opened "Folder Options" and it indicated in "General" that for "Browse folders" it will "Open each folder in the same window." "Use Windows classic folders" was also selected.

    However, if I go down into a subdirectory, no more new folders are opened. The same window is used.

    Can anyone explain how to keep all this in the same windows?
