    New window when I open a folder


    Hello,
    every time I open a folder, the explorer opens a new window instead of using the same window.
    My Folder options is set to "Open each folder in the same window". Tried running sfc /scannow but it found nothing. I have also tried to edit the registry to force the "Open each folder in the same window" setting but it did not work. I am using Windows 8.1 Pro.
    Thanks

    Maybe this: Solution: Explorer open each folder in same window error and SQL Management Studio, IE and Team Explorer errors | David Moore

    Boils down to note box at the top of this tutorial: Folder - Open in Same or New Window in Windows 8
    From a command-line prompt with admin privileges run these commands:

    regsvr32 "%SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll"
    regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

    Then reboot your computer
