I've posted this once already, but maybe I made it sound too confusing. I just need to know a default value that's already on your computer. I can't find it on Vista, so Please, if you are running XP:
Open any folder, click on "Tools" in the Toolbar, then "Folder Options..." Click on the "File Types" tab, then under "Registered File Types:" highlight "File Folder" then click "Advanced". Under "Actions:" it should say "open". Highlight "open", then click "Edit..". Don't worry, I'm not going to ask you to change anything (hopefully, the edit button is not grayed out). The next window should have two bars for typing (editing), the first, "Action:" , should say "open", I need to know what the next one says! It possibly is labeled: "Application used to perform this action:" However it is labeled, that is the information I need.
If someone could PLEASE do this for me! Just make sure that you "Cancel" your way back out! That ensures you don't change anything.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

In XP under Actions the default is "find" with checkmark for "Confirm open after download" and "Always show extension"
If you are looking for open you will be adding a New action. Default installation does not show open.

Yours also says "find"??? Yet under "file" (as opposed to "file folder") the default is "explore" then "open"...
Okay, if that's not it, then WHAT??? Why everytime I click on a folder does it open search? I have to right click and click "open", and it's really getting annoying! Any suggestions as to what is causing this and where to go to fix it?

Click Start, Run and enter the following text exactly as it appears:
regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
Please post rather than send me a Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.
