Windows 10: Windows file explorer opening multiple windows, correctly set options

    Windows file explorer opening multiple windows, correctly set options

    If I open file explorer and browse to c then go down 2 folders, another window will pop open and there will be 2 instances of it. If I go to my d drive, it automatically opens a separate window. I have already changed file and folder options to default and to open the same window. Something is corrupt in here and I can't fix it. Already ran SFC and it didn't help. What the hell is going on with file explorer in windows 10??? Any way to reset it to default via the registry or somehow?

    Try this sevenforums post and see if this helps you. I know this is not in Windows 10, but they are close in the same relation (windows 7 and 10). :)

    Thanks. I have already run sfc /SCANNOW. It didn't help. I am thinking it has something to do with how classicshell is handing windows explorer. Checking to see if I can find any info. Thanks again.
