    Hi all...

    Noticed a couple of things with 7 recently that used to work fine. 1st is the safely remove hardware, but I found another thread on that.

    The second is that no matter what option I choose in the Folder and Search options of explorer, I am always getting multiple windows when I open a folder.

    It is though it is stuck on "Open each folder in its own window" even though the radio button is selecting "Open each folder in the same window" I have tried setting it back and forward between the two - no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Not really an answer. I ended up upgrading from 7000 build to 7057 and it sorted it all out.

    But.. I'm running 7100. :razz:

    Also, I think it may be either Filezilla or Editpad Pro that's causing it. I did a system restore, which fixed it, but then I installed those two applications, and it broke again. This is really irritating.

    I have also installed filezilla on a w7 build 7100, but it does not give me the problems you mention.

    Hi all,

    I am having the same issue here with Explorer opening folders in new window after every mouse click or key up. Regardless of what I set on the folder settings... Most solutions out there refer to :mad:messing around with regedit settings or installing some other third party app which I really wouldn't give in to.

    I have tried multiple restore points all the way to dates when it was alright!
    I have tried switching between opening each folder in its own window/same window!
    I am running Windows 7 Enterprise....


    Help Please :applaud:
