> I'm running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I've
> always had the Folder Options set to "Open each folder in the

> started opening every folder in its own window.
> Among the suggestions so far that have failed (thanks to all
> who tried):
> * "Set it to NOT open each in its own window, OK your way out,
> then go back in and set it again."
> * "Try holding down <Ctrl> while closing a window."
> * "Pick a folder, set it to display in the same window,
> and then apply that folder's settings to all folders."
> My guess is that there's a registry setting that I need to change.
> Any new ideas?
