Windows 2000 is opening windows in seperate windows
Posted on 2004-08-13
I have a really strange problem. Basically we have a Windows 2000 Domain in which group policy is used alot. We also have a custom application that creates users accounts and adds them into the necessary groups automatically.
When i create a user through this tool something really strange happens! When i click on a folder (logged in as the newly created user), it opens up a new folder with the results. I would like the folder to stay within the folder if u know what i mean.
I can recreate the problem by logging on as a Domain Admin and checking the "Launch folder windows in a seperate window" option in view Folder Options. The Domain admin does not have this problem when he logs into the workstation.
Unfortunately because of the group policies in the domain i am unable to do this logged in as the user.
This leads me to believe that it MUST be a group policy problem but i cannot find anywhere in group policy where it would be set for this behaviour.
