Everytime I click on a file in windows explorer it opens a new window instead of just going to this file. I mean that it does go there but opens a new window for some reason. This is very annoying because it takes up a lot of room on my taskbar. I don't know why this started happening but I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to go back to the way it was.
Thanks.

Are you maybe just click happy? Could it be that you are clicking on it several times and not waiting for it to load? Have you checked system for virus. I'm no pro not even sure if I should be answering this :)

Try this:

Start > Settings > Folder Options... On the General tab look at the Windows Desktop Update and select "Custom, based on settings you choose:, then click the "Settings" button.

In the second section of the window that appears, called "Browse folders as follows" select "Open each folder in the same window", then click ok. The close the folder options window.

P.S. Darg_mals: Don't worry- all input is allowed as long as it is not harmful! Asking and thinking is how we all learn! :)

Thanks a lot, P-chips. I was in my folders area the other day I must have hit something I shouldn't have. All is well now, thanks for your help.
Have a good day.
