Windows 7: Folders

Windows 7 Ultimate N 64-bit

Hi, I have just reinstalled 7 on my Samsung laptop. It is 32bit system, and I installed 64 bit ultimate as I installed 4GB ram.

Since I did this when I go into any folder docs, C drive, program files.

Any folder it opens it in a new window, I have reset and checked all my folder options and doesn’t seem to make a diff.

Only thing I have done to the system is disabled several unnecessary processes and changed the reg to make program files default install location rather than Program Files (x86)

The only thing that doesn’t open the folder I click on into a new window is if I use the left hand side column

I do have a second separate issue since I have reinstalled using ultimate N x64 see here also.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 10 Pro x64

I would change the registry back to allow 32 bit programs to install in Programs (x86).

Windows 7 Ultimate N 64-bit

by all means i will try, but only thing i have changed is the default location, so i could change it to C:\richyrichuk\programs

and just most programs will go to that as default install location.

Consolidate Shortcut Folders/File Folders in Open Dialogue
I was wondering if there's a way to sort file folders and shortcut folders so they are listed together, as in previous OS versions. I find it frustrating that 7 has forced the shortcuts to be split up into their own category rather than their file properties. I prefer to sort my folders by type,...

WLM 2011- Moving Folders Within Local Folders
Have many (300+) email folders as sub-folders within Local Folders.When I want to save an email, I 'drag/drop(paste)' the email in the appropriate folder (is faster than choosing the 'move to folder' procedure). However, when hurrying (and not paying attention), I sometimes inadvertently move an...
