Hi

While testing out som apps, I changed the default property on file folders to run an app. I can still right-click and choose open to open the folder, but doubleclicking only runs the app. How can I reset this to normal (without reinstalling)?

go to an explorer window.
Choose Tools/Folder Options
go to File Types TAB
Scroll until you see Folder (N/A Folder)

there you should see change and advanced button. If change button is grayed out than click advanced button else click change button

ýt should contain two actions:
1 explore
2 open

reset to these values and there you go
