    Windows 10 Pro

    When double clicking a folder, cmd tries to run instead of opening it.

    When i try opening a folder, an error pops up. That's because cmd is my default action when double clicking. This all started after installing some Windows 10 updates. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of cmd on my context menu? it's really annoying!

    You need to restore the default action for Folders.

    See here: Default File Type Associations - Restore in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Scroll down to Option Two then scroll down to Folder. Download, unzip and run the .reg file.
