Folder opening options
I have tried to set my folders to open separately rather than one folder
replacing another because I want to have two or more open at once. However,
although I have on numerous occasions tried to change the settings, Vista
seems to ignore this and I can only have one folder open at a time. Has
anyone else found this?

Re: Folder opening options
The 'Open each folder in it's own window' option only seems to work when the
Navigation pane is not displayed. Vista is different from XP in that the
default verb for folders, 'Open'(no Navigation pane) vs.
'Explore'(Navigation pane displayed), is dynamic and based on the current
state of the Explorer window.

In an Explorer window where the Navigation pane is displayed, you can open a
folder in a new window by right-clicking the folder & selecting 'Open'
rather than the default 'Explore'

Hi MJJ,

This will show you how to have a folder to open in the same or separate
window when you click on it.
