Registry setting to control Browse folders option? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for a way to bypass the UI and set Vista to open each folder in its own window.  I've tried creating the DWORD SeperateProcess in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and setting it to 1, but this isn't working (I'm thinking the setting has changed since XP).  Does anyone know what registry key I create / modify to get the behavior I'm looking for?

  • I don't believe you need to go to the Windows Registry to do that.


    Open Windows Explorer, press Alt (to see the manu bar on top) then click on Tools / Folder Options...


    on the General tab select "Open each folder in its own window" under Browse folders category, then click OK.


    You can also see the View tab to find a lot more options (as XP)


    Hope this help
