    Hi guys,

    First thanks to all, i have solved this too, i have opened a theard asking this same.

    File Manager keep opening a folder in a new window - Windows 10 Forums

    I dont know if somebody already said, but if like me someone has problems still after delete the key is because is some file explorer window still open.

    Have to close all the file explorer and then delete the key again.

    PD: sorry for my bad english.

    Do you happen to have installed Photoshop CC and use the Export As function?
    Photoshop CC 2015 Export As Desktop folder bug | Adobe Community

    I did, and that solved my problem.
    Basically just delete this key using Regedit
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\EXPLORER\MODULES\NavPane

    This actually worked for me. I created an account to say this!

    If you are having two windows explorer panes open when you click a folder, close all explorer panes, delete the key with regedit, and restart explorer, this works!!

    Just like the quoted said, if you have explorer open, you will need to delete the key again.

    I created an account just to show some love! Thank you! This helped me out!

    The issue for me was similar. I do have Adobe products installed, and noticed randomly folders would open multiple times and in new windows. Checked through settings and everything, but still couldn't figure out what in the world was going on.

    Anywho, after doing a little digging on the Interwebs, this was by far the most helpful. Make sure you have all explorer windows closed, and it'll definitely alleviate your issue.

    I'm a developer and constantly have multiple windows open, so I can only assume you understand the frustration of having 30 windows open when having to navigate a hierarchy to get to files. LOL

    Thanks again, Carter.

    Ok guys, not everything is working fine. I've killed all explorer process, deleted this key. When I run explorer, every double-click opens new window, and key appears again. Any ideas?

    I registered too just to get on this thread. First of all, THANKS to the many posters before me who gave me a piece of the puzzle for my own PC. But it still wasn't always playing nice for me - then I realized - it always happened if I started my browsing with a folder in "Quick Access." If I went straight to a folder on my desktop, no problem.

    But I didn't want to have to give up Quick Access, so what I did was change the "Open File Explorer to" setting in "Folder Options" (at the top of the "General" tab) from "Quick Access" to "This PC." Now it opens to This PC, but I can click on any folder in Quick Access and browse without it opening additional windows.

    tl;dr:
    1. Go to "Folder Options"
    2. Change "Open File Explorer to" from "Quick Access" to "This PC"
    3. Breathe sigh of relief
    Hope this helps Chrzaszcu above and anyone else for whom deleting the registry key was not enough...
