    In the "Folder Options" > General tab, I ask for each folder to open in its own window, it does not happen.



    I also request to use classic windows folders but the only difference from that and "show preview and filters" is whether the tool bar shows or needs alt to display it.



    Is this me or a bug ?? And how do I over come?



    thanks.

    I tested out what you said on my computer, and have exactly the same issue. Classic folders turned on only appears to keep the alt-bar visible, and it will never open folders in a new window. Sounds like a problem to be fixed in sp1 :hehe:

    Thanks kingofnexus,



    At least I know that's not a manifestation of my insanity :w00t:



    Is there a process to report these "anomalies" to MS ?

    Having checked the 'help' files on what this is supposed to do, then yes there is clearly something wrong as it simply does nothing whatever regardless of which you select, well nothing visible at any rate.

    If you right-click the folder and select "open" from the menu, it will open the folder in a new window and yes, the folder option doesn't appear to do anything

    Good News,



    In a REAL Administrator account, I opened "folder options" and chose "open each folder in its own window", and they now do. For any user account that chooses to do so. I can't say they open in a "Windows classic folder", but my main objective was opening in their own window.



    I knew you all would be so excited by the news :cool:
