Double Click Open not Search in XP

  DJ-Garry 23:52 23 Feb 04

I have a recently installed XP Pro machine. Until recently, double clicking on a folder would open it. Now for some reason the default option is to 'Search'. How can I change this back please.
MAny thanks, Garry.

Not sure why that link broke up. I'll try again.

If that hasn't worked then copy and paste the following and change the hxxp to http with no gaps.

This helps if your posting ' MS links ' just copy and paste it click here

Hence, your link click here

I presume it's the ";" which mucks it up since the Help Forum seems to handle other long links.

I haven't noticed this problem on other forums. What do they do different (Ed?)
