    File Manager keep opening a folder in a new window

    Hi guys,

    First of all thanks to everybody to help newbies like me.

    I have problem when i'm working with the file manager in windows 10, when i'm inside the "Downloads" folder, if i try to open a subfolder, then open a new window.

    I'm not english navite speaker so i make a short GIF to explain better.

    I paste here, as can you see even i have select the correct option keep ocurring and also if i restore the default it happens too.

    Click image for larger version.

    I have Windows 10 1607 comp 14393.82

    EDIT: I have noticed something else, for some reason when i change the name of a file do not apply instantly and i have to manually update the folder, and all it happend in this folder.

    There is some way to restore to default via regedit or something?
