Folder options....need help

when i right click on a folder, say my music it comes up with the default saying search at the top this is opening a search window.

It should say open as the default so i can just double click on the folder and it will open it. I dont know how to change it back i need some advice...

as you can imagine it is very annoying when you have to right click and scroll down to where it says open on every file you want to get into....

I have looked on folder options to rectify the default settings and i can't see it in there..unless someone knows otherwise...

all comments appreciated....LEE

If you go to Control panel - Mouse.
Check that the left hand button is set to
'click or select' rather than context menu.

This is a problem windows sometimes gets into -I have had it on Win98SE and WinXP - A reboot normally solves this.
