That actually did the trick, event3horizon. Thank you so much!

Layback Bear, thank you kindly for the suggestion. : ) That 'Ease of Access' feature is related to something different, though. (It gives focus to windows via mouse-over).

P.S. @event, looks like I was posting almost at the same time you wrote your most recent comment. Sorry I didn't see it before replying. At any rate, you solved the issue! Thanks again. : )

Typing folder name selects files, not folders
Normally when I'm in a folder like My Documents, typing the name of a folder selects the folder I want to access. Recently, typing a name selects files with a similar name. How can I fix it so that typing a name in Explorer selects folders before it selects files?
