    Multiple instances of the same folder open

    I feel kinda dumb asking this, but here goes.

    Has windows always allowed having multiple instances of the same folder open? I can't remember.

    I can open the same folder from a desktop shortcut in an unlimited amount of instances. I can find my desktop toolbar filling up with buttons from the same folder.

    Have I enabled some setting to cause this?
