    Change Windows Explorer context menu default (XP Pro SP1)

    When I double-click on a folder in the files pane of a WIndows explorer window, it starts a search action instead of an explore. I cannot figure how to revert it to the explore action. I also cannot figure out how this could have changed. Or might power toys have an option that I mistakenly checked?

    Man I had that happen to me once and I can't remember what the deal was. I will rack my brain and get back to you.

    I found this, give it a try and let me know if it fixed it. In the mean time I'm going to find the registry fix for you also.

    In Windows Explorer, go to tools and then folder options...

    Click the File Types tab and then look for extension "N/A" for "Folder". Click the advanced button, highlight "explore" and then click the set as defalt button.

    Save, Close and then relaunch Windows Explorer.
