    Downloads Folder Keeps Opening in New Window...


    So "This PC" has a series of folders: Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, etc...

    I have my preferences to "Open each folder in the same window". For most folders, this works exactly as it should.

    However, whenever I open a sub folder in the Downloads folder, it opens up in a new window.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    No, mine is okay.

    In File Explore, right click on the Downloads folder and select Properties.
    Click the Customize tab and see what Optimize this folder for is set to. Mine is set to General items.

    Hmmm, what is the default action (the top highlighted one) when you right click on a sub folder? MIne is Open, not Open in new Window.

    On most folders it's "expand". However, on sub folders of the "downloads" folder, the "expand" option is greyed out.
