Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Whenever I doubleclick on a file folder, it always opens up in a new window. It is getting rather annoying to have to close all of these windows, and I don't know how to fix the problem. I have clicked on Options>Folder Options...> and then selected "Open each folder in the same window" with no difference. I have even clicked on file types>Folder/File Folders>Advanced, but there is no option to change, the only selectable options are "Find" and "Open". What should I do?
If you mess around in the registry, or install some different software packages that add things to the right-click menu, you can end up with this problem
There's a quick and easy fix for this problem. Open up regedit.exe by using Start\Run and then browse down to this registry key:
Double-click on the default value and set it to "none" without the quotes, as seen here:
This will restore the normal behavior.
If you are getting a message that says "Windows cannot find 'PET32.exe'", then at some point you had a virus, or still have a virus. First, make sure that you run a virus scanner to get rid of the virus. Then run the regsvr32 command above, which should fix the problem
I hope this help.
