New window keeps popping up when i select a folder

Hi all,

recently my when i select a new folder, the folder will open up in a new window. This irritates me as the windows will accumulate at the task bar. Any one knows of a solution to this?

cheers,

In Folder Options, View click on Open Each Folder In The Same Window. Then click the button to apply changes to all folders.

Hello aidilithinain, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to see if this may be the issue. Setting Folder Options to "Open each folder in the same window" should normally stop this.

Open each Folder in the Same or Own Separate New Window

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Setting file select window size
When opening a file in 2010 MEP in Win 7 the window is fairly small and only a few files are visible. I have to either make the window larger every time or scroll through a small window. Does anyone know how to set the window so that it opens large (almost full screen) by default?
