Windows 7: stop Favorites opening in new window

stop Favorites opening in new window

Ok this is what is happening.

When I select the folders in the Favorites tree instead of opening in the window pane they open in a new window. They didn't used to. This is only started happening about half an hour ago.

I don't if this has anything to do with it but I opened one of my Favorites in the explorer folder tree via right-click 'open in new window'. But now they won't stop opening in a new window.

Yes my folder options are set to open in the same window. It is ONLY the Favorites. None of the Libraries or other locations (Homegroup, Computer, etc) in the folder tree do this.

Please, how do I make it stop?
