Windows 7: Folder Options Question

Folder Options Question

In the start menu, when I'm looking through my folders, from time to time I want to open the parent folder in a new window, instead of only getting to see a list of the folder's contents. I know theres a way to make it so that if say I click on MyDocuments it opens MyDocuments, instead of just showing a list of what is in the folder, but I can't figure out how. Tried searching this and other forums, tried google, but I'm only coming up just short of an answer. Its probably something simple that I'm missing, but I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
