    Change FTP to not open in new window using windows explorer

    Whenever I ftp to a site it opens up in a new window. Is there any way to keep it in the same explorer window. Windows 7 did this and I can't seem to find an option on my computer to keep it in the same window.

    Thatís odd. That doesnít happen for me.

    We can check a few registry keys. Could you post the content of the files created by the following commands? The data there might reveal something.
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\ftp" "C:\Users\%username%\Desktop\ftp_l.reg"
    reg export "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\FTP" "C:\Users\%username%\Desktop\ftp_c.reg"

    Thank you.

    Those registry values are fine.

    What’s the behaviour on another user account like?
