    WINDOWS 10: Folders Window Opens Twice On Double Click


    Hello,

    Every time i double a folder at times it opens the folder in a new window "twice" - this is becoming really annoying. Is there a way for me to resolve this? I've followed the basic troubleshooting guides found when searching around but it seems like nothing has fixed this problem. Any advice or starting points i should start from?

    It only seems to happen when i open the File Explorer from the taskbar, click on Desktop and then a folder on the desktop. eg: https://gyazo.com/0842cb148eef9c14c43b7abd30c38ac3

    Thank you

    Have a look at this Open each Folder in the Same or Own Separate New Window - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I know this is in W7 but it should be the same in 10 (or very similar).
    i would first try option 2 and would try the registry option as the last option.

    Already tried those steps, still no luck at all.

    Here are the binary values that were changed before:

    Any other recommendations? I read somewhere online about Adobe Creative Cloud possibly causing problems? May be wrong.

    Anyway that didn't seem to work for me.

    Thank you
