Windows 7: Folders open in its own window

Folders open in its own window

Hello Everyone,

I have got a problem with folders which open in its own window instead in the same one.

I have checked the box "Open each folder in the same window" in the folder options, but they still open in its own one. It's not big problem but very annoying one. I run Windows 7 x86, build 7100.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello Martee,

I would try changing it to open windows in a new window, then restart. Go back and change it to open in the same window, restart and see if that corrects it.

Thank you OEM for the suggestion. Done what you said, still the same. I get whole bunch of windows, guess it's a little bug or something. I think, will have to try the other build of Seven.

Thanks again. Cheers...
