Hello, I'm not exactly using WinXP, in fact I'm using Win2K but I am pretty sure, from what you have mentioned so far, that the differences here are minimal. Go back into the Folder Options, File Types. In the list of registered file types, scroll down to Folder, click the Advanced button, which will give you a list of actions that are registered for Folders, with the bold action being the default for when you double-click a Folder. Now all you have to do is click on either Explore or Open (depending on your preference) and then click the Set As Default button. Hope this helps.
