Windows 7: When i open a folder, it opens to a new window?

When i open a folder, it opens to a new window?

Windows Home Premium
64-Bit Operating System

I uninstalled Internet Explorer 9. I use Mozilla Firefox now.

How come when ever i try to click a new folder, or try to browse for a folder or a file, it always makes a new window ??? I hate it so much trying to close all these folders...


I've tried everything ! but didn't work. It's also set on " open in the same window "

I also tried the CMD etc.. sfc/ Scannow or something , but it never worked...

I hope you guys can really help me on this, i know its just little but it's every annoying and is really in need for help :'( Thanks!

Hi NBAPwns13 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Take a look here Folder Options - Vista Forums and ensure that the option Open each folder in the same window is checked, as shown in the first image under STEP TWO. Click OK to confirm and save changes.
