Hi, I was messing around with some windows settings on XP and at one point i selected Set Default in the "Tools --> Folder Options" menu. From then on when i right clicked a file the option "open" would not appear but all files opened a search box.

I have been looking through "Tools --> Folder Options --> File Types --> Folder --> Advanced" and creating new "open" options using URL's from other file types and programs in the "system 32" folder but none of them work with out opening each folder in a seperate window. i have checked that the option to open folders in the same window is selected.

I have also looked on other computers and they will not let me look at the link.

Can anyone help?

If i havent explained properly or you dont understand do not hesitate to contact me at: [email protected]

Cheers, James

Howdy,

Have you tried System Restore to before you made the change?

Nah i want help more, i got a good junk blocker and spammers are too lazy to find them one by one, they just normally use websites where they get hordes of email addresses
