hey guys my problem is that all the folders open in a new window even though i have set them to open in the same window. the problem started when i was changing my system icons and Explorer stopped responding. After that i found that the "Open" option was missing from the right click menu for the folders. i then manually added the option through the "folder options" dialog box. now what has happened is that although the folders open they do so in new windows everytime!! How do i rectify this? Any solutions?? PS:My OS is windows XP SP2.
