Windows 7: double click on folders doesn't work

double click on folders doesn't work

When double click on folders I get the pop up window with the message;
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.
But if I right click on the mousse and choose "open" the folder opens without problems.
The same problem occurs if in the place of "open" I choose "explore"
Could someone tell me what's going on, how can I fix this behavior?
Thanks

Hello Jetzimoon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and merging the Folder and Directory options in the tutorial below may be able to fix this after a restart. They restore the default associations for these.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Brink, thanks a lot. I made the steps that are in the tutorial and the extension went back to default.

Thanks again
