Hi All
Was tinkering around in the folders options settings and some how i have changed the settings for when i double click on a folder..it now opens the "search" dialogue window.Also when i click file inside a window the first option is search not open doh!
Any help would be much appreciated and i promise not to tinker again :waughh: :blush:
thanks
Keith

You mean the search dialogue box with the little torch?

no not that one..if you right click a folder it has open then explore then search, in that order, mine now has search at the top not open

If you go back into folder options there should be a 'restore default' button, you could try that. Did you muck around with all the view options?

Eureka!! Found the answer on this page.

.but not very clear and a bit dodgy as you have to edit the registry and it is not labeled as clearly as it should be in the actual registry. anyway it has fixed the problem..apparently it happens if you fiddle with the advanced settings in Folders..
