Bug with opening folders in windows explorer on Windows 7 RTM - not opening in same window! RRS feed

  • Question

  • in Folder options I have "open each foler in the same window" checked
    None of the boxes are ticked in "navigation pane"
    on the View tab i've clicked "restore defaults"
    I've rebooted
    Whenever I double click on a drive or folder it opens in its own window! SO FRUSTRATING!

  • This happened on my Windows 7 PC and it was due to an install of Sourcegear Vault 3.0 that overwrites a registry entry used by many programs. The three it affected on my PC were Internet Explorer 8 (most links will not open), Windows Explorer (double click opens a new search window) and MS SQL Server Management Studio 2008 errors with COM error. This is all due to two registry entries containing {B8DA6310-E19B-11D0-933C-00A0C90DCAA9} overwriting the correct ones.

    To fix this, save the info below into a reg file and run it to correct the registry entries on your PC. A reboot is required to get the double click working correctly in Explorer.

  • Hi,

    I suspect a third party software may cause the problem.

    Could you please test the issue in Safe Mode?

    If it doesn't occur in Safe Mode, I suggest you take a clean boot to narrow down which program cause the problem.

    Thanks.

  • Hi, I started in safe mode but I still have the same problem with double clicking on a folder (opens in a new window).
    I double checked in options that the radio button to open in same window was still selected.
    If I right click a folder and select "open" it DOES open in the same window. It's like the default for double clicking on a folder is like right clicking and selecting "open in new window".
    Thanks for you help.

  • I don't think so, it's a fresh install done 2 days ago, AVG was one of the first things I installed, it's all been behind a hardware firewall.
    I have install Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 plus a few other apps that weren't downloaded from Internet.
    I've also done a full system scan which reported nothing.

  • I've also noted that even if I log in to the machine as a different user, folders still open up in their own window.

    There MUST be some registry hack to get around this annoyance before I have to head back to XP?! I was thinking that Windows 7 would be the operating system MS would get right :-(

    I don't even know why a person would ever want folders to open in a new window when you double click on them.

  • Rather than hacking the registry, I would use the Folder Options dialog to toggle the single-click and double-click to open option back and forth, with apply and restarting Windows in between. If it's a corrupt registry setting, that should do it. My system, set to single click, does not display your behavior.

  • Damn, no joy with that either! I set to open in own window, rebooted, set to open in same window, rebooted. STILL opens in new window :-(
    I also then tried setting to single click to open, rebooted, but still opens in new window!
    If only there were some way to emulate right-click->open when I double click (or single click if that option is turned on) with folders...

  • I'm wondering if there's some option to "edit" what program is run when you double click on folders, much like you can edit file types to change what program is used when a file is opened or edited? Perhaps then I could edit that to tell it to use explorer, but add some switches like "/same" to force it to open in the same window?!?!

  • I suspect you have some corrupt system files. it would only take about ten minutes to run SFC /scannow and look at CBS.Log.

    How to analyze the log file entries that the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe) progr.url

  • Hi Mark, thanks for you help, I ran the commands and the resulting log is below.

    It didn't fix the problem (and I also tried changing to open in new window, reboot, open in same window, reboot to no avail).

  • Well, I would've hoped that downloading Windows 7 RTM from MSDN would be the best source for the Install, but you're right, perhaps people have hacked Windows 7 to make it work better and searching torrent sites for it is the best option. 

    OK, being a *bit* sarcastic there due to the frustration of this problem, but seriously, looks like sticking with XP and re-reviewing Windows 7 when Service Pack 1 comes out for it (which wil hopefully fix annoying problems like this) will be the best option for my company.

  • Hi,

    There is a known solution for Windows Vista. I am not sure if it works in Windows 7. Could you please test it?

    1.Open a command prompt as administrator (right click -> Run as Administrator)
    2.Run following command:

    regsvr32 actxprxy.dll

    3.Click OK in the popup window.
    4.Reboot the computer to test the issue.

    Does it work?

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi, I ended up getting so frustrated that I wiped the hard drive and re-installed windows.

    I reinstalled all the programs and found that the bug came back

    I used system restore to go back to a time when double clicking on a folder didn't open in a new window and started re-installing software again.

    I found out that when I installed Source Vault "VaultClient_3_5_1" (which is my source control software) that the bug re-surfaced! Something with that package and Windows 7 don't mix.

  • This happened on my Windows 7 PC and it was due to an install of Sourcegear Vault 3.0 that overwrites a registry entry used by many programs. The three it affected on my PC were Internet Explorer 8 (most links will not open), Windows Explorer (double click opens a new search window) and MS SQL Server Management Studio 2008 errors with COM error. This is all due to two registry entries containing {B8DA6310-E19B-11D0-933C-00A0C90DCAA9} overwriting the correct ones.

    To fix this, save the info below into a reg file and run it to correct the registry entries on your PC. A reboot is required to get the double click working correctly in Explorer.

    I started a forum on SourceGear as well, I'll add your post to it!

  • Tony,

    Yep another Kiwi. I'm in Auckland, NZ.

    Glad to help. The 3 issues I had were bugging me for about a week so I was rapt to find the solution to all 3 was the same registry entry.

    cheers

  • Hi guys. Kevin's workmate here :P

    The core issue here can create a multitude of problems on your system.

    Those registry changes will fix several of the problems but the overall solution would be to simply re-register the actxproxy.dll and ieproxy.dll files to undo any damage from various software installs.

    I have posted a full explanation and solution here: http://www.davidmoore.info/2009/08/19/solution-explorer-open-each-folder-in-same-window-error-and-sql-management-studio-ie-and-team-explorer-errors/

    As a quick and dirty summary though, you must run the following in a command prompt with administrative privileges:

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

    then REBOOT

    Regards

    David

  • Kevin, you are a God-send from Godzone. (Yep, I'm a kiwi too).

    I received the symptoms of this problem when I uninstalled Sourcegear Vault client tools after finished a job at a client and didn't need them anymore. I had installed the tools when my PC was running Vista then upgraded to Windows 7. After uninstalling Vault I got the explorer window issue and the IE8 never-connecting tab issue. Your registry fix saved my bacon.

    Good on ya!

    You are the man! You saved my life. I also SourceGear Fortress (not Vault) installed, and with your registry change it fixed my issue!!!

    Meanwhile this solution fixed another issue that I right click on a link in IE8 to open new tab or open in new window, the new tab/window won't load content!

    Thanks again!

  • I had this same problem.  I was just getting ready to copy the registry hack that was suggested here, when a window popped up on my desktop from Microsoft - literally floating over the registry hack I was about to copy into the registry.  Felt like a good fairy was watching over me, which is not what I usually experience with software of any kind.

    It suggested that I download and run a folders fixit program.  It provided the download link right in the floating window.  So I downloaded and ran it and to my amazement, it fixed the problem.  My folders are back to working the way I have designated in my folder options (open in same window).  It then asked if I want to save it for possible later use (or something like that) and put a shortcut to it on my desktop.

    This is how it stored it:

    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe "C:\Windows\system32\url.dll",FileProtocolHandler "http://support.microsoft.com/fixit"

    They even included the download url at the end of this file name.  It felt like my problem fix was fully automated and I just had to watch (not quite, but it felt like it)

    Thanks Microsoft fairy, for coming to my rescue in my time of need!

  • Update a day later:  After I shut down for the night and then booted back up today, the problem came back.  So the fix only lasted until the next boot.  That must reveal something about the nature of the problem, but I haven't figured out what yet, except that whatever causes the problem is loaded when I boot my system.  I suppose I could run that MS folder fix app every time I boot.  But that's no real solution, because I know I won't put up with that routine for long.

    Back to square 1.  So there is no Microsoft fairy - it's business as usual, I'm afraid.

  • Hi all, I too have had this problem of Windows Explorer not opening in the same window. I'm not sure when it started, but I did install Internet Explorer 9 Beta, disliked it so uninstalled it and went back to version 8. Shortly after that I noticed Windows Explorer would open a new window, often two new windows, when I clicked in the right pane to open a folder.  I was just about at the point where I was willing to do a reinstall of Win 7 and go thru all that hassle.

    Then I read somewhere something about my user profile perhaps being corrupted, and it recommended creating a new user profile and copying my info that that new profile. I'd still have to redo all my settings, but much easier than a reinstall. I tried to do it myself but don't know my way around that stuff so well. It seemed like an administrator needed to do it (I'm on a domain), so when I went to work I explained to our IT guy what I'd read, so he renamed mine to  ___Old and created a new one, and restarted.

    I then realized I had a lot of work to do that day and wouldn't have the time to redo all my settings, so I had him reinstate the original one, that he had renamed ___Old.   When he rebooted to my original user profile, the problem was fixed!  I couldn't believe it!  So many fixes I'd tried, now it was fixed almost by accident.  I now click on a folder and it opens in the same window, just like it is supposed to!

    So I thought I needed to share this in case it helps someone else.

  • Guys,

    This problem has been driving me nuts for weeks now. I've cruised this and several other forums, and tried every damn "fix" out there.

    WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM (All updates applied)

    I've done registry edits, registered .dll files, changed folder option settings back and forth, uninstalled software, re-installed software,  etc, etc.. Ad nauseam. (I don't have IE8 or Source Gear Vault) Although both of these seem to come up often in these discussions. 

    I bumbled into something on one these forums, and    ** I FOUND THE SOLUTION!**

    1. It is very easy to do
    2. Presumably SAFE (It comes from Microsoft) 
    3. I suggest you bookmark this site for future use. (I did, and plan on using it for some of my clients computers when having weird problems)

    Go to this web site: http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/

    Then, in section 2 click on "Use desktop features, or open programs and files"

    In the window below will be a list of solutions. Simply "Run Now" the one called : Diagnose and repair Windows File and Folder Problems automatically  After running the "fixit" my problem of a new window opening all the time in Windows Explorer went away! Worked perfect!

    Ps.  In my Browser rather than running when I clicked "Run",  it downloaded the file. So I ran it locally. No big deal, they suggest doing that anyway if you need the file to run on a computer that is not online. When I ran the program I chose the second option, which is to NOT fix the problem automatically, but to see a list of repair options first. (rather than choosing to repair automatically)

    My results were two things:

    1. Rebuild my icon cache (didn't really have troubles with that anyway)
    2. Repair folder options

    I decided to let it "fix" both problems, even though I haven't had any problems with icons. After the program finished (about 20 sec) I checked and no longer had the problem of a new window opening in explorer, however the acid test was going to be will it continue to work properly after I re-boot. Guess what? PROBLEM WAS FINALLY SOLVED!

    Anyway, I hope this works for any of you guys too. I see that "some" of these other solutions worked for some of you, but none of them worked for me until I ran the "FIXIT" program from Microsoft. There is also a ton of other AUTOMATIC FIXIT's on the site for various other computer problems. I hope they all work as well as this one did! (I'll try to post this in some of the other forums, but feel free to do so yourself)

    Good luck everyone.....

    Mark

  • Could be late answer, but, some Idea talking about register IE dll's got a clue, and really the problem came after a virus infecting the IE exe. Simply updating IE resolved that issue.

  • Thanks for all information.

    I solved the problem at last.

    1. start windows n safe mode.
    2. start->control panel ->uni stall programs then uninstall the printer's driver
    3. restart
    4. start -> device & printers  check that the printer doesn't exists
    5. install the printer again, replace existing driver.

  • Dear Robinson,

    It is fine. But I'm not an expert. How can I create a "reg" file? And how can I start it?

    Thank you

  • Dear Robinson,

    The system answers, that I have to use switches like /u, /n, /i a.s.o. but neither the MS explanations are not clear, nor using all variations possible, the application could not be started.

    Thanks
