Click on my computer and open it up click on tools/options/Folder Options
window will pop up. In the middle of the general tab is a bullet box to
choose open each folder in the same window.  Under the view tab uncheck the
box that says remember each folders view settings and then click on the
button to set all settings like current folder and that should fix it.

Subject: [windows2000] How to stop explorer windows opening in a new

I have an address bar on my task bar that I use to launch local folders
and web addresses.  If I enter a local folder or drive, an explorer
window pops up as expected.  Annoyingly though, if I click any of the
folders, they open in a new window.  I have the 'open folders in the
same window' option set.  This doesn't happen if I type a drive from the
run box.

Any ideas?  My freshly installed PC at home doesn't do this!
