Not sure what I've done but for some reason when I double click on a folder icon (using XP Pro) I open the 'Search Results' window and I have to Right Click and select'Open' How do I get this back to normal ie double click opens the folder?

hi GW

does it happen on all folders or just one? If it's only one folder then there may be an autorun.inf in the folder that is initiating the search dialogue. If it's all folders then a key might be stuck on the keyboard. If you've checked out the keyboard then open a folder window and click Tools->Folder Options. Click the File Types Tab. Select the file type 'Folder' and press the Advanced button. Check that 'open' is set to be the default action.

Further to anjons commments, in the folder options>view tab click onthe reset all folders tab - this should alleviate the problem
