    Many thanks to Stantly, who solved my previous problem with windows explorer (clicking folders opening in new windows despite the "open in same window" being set".

    Explorer now opens folders if I click on them in the left hand "Folders" pane, but if I click on any folders in the right hand (files pane) in opens a new window to "my documents".

    All the problems started when I added added a new function to the folder file folder file type properties to print out the contents of a folder by calling a batch file that piped the content to a file.

    In the file association for file folders in the advanced section I now have three functions
    - the afore mentioned 'create file list'
    - explore (the default), and
    - find

    For the folder file type I just have:
    - explore and
    - open

    Any suggestions on how to make clicking folders in the right hand pane opwn them up propoerly in the same window as per clicking them on the left hand pane?
