So you created a New Folder and that's what it's named? Then you copied photos into it, and now you can't access it? Is that correct?

Hello Whiteman, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, see if downloading and merging the .reg file for the listed folder option in the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default associations and registry entries for folders.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

If that doesn't help, then you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this issue started to hopefully undo and fix is.

Hope this helps,
