    Thanks for your reply Brink!
    When I do a search for the “test” in a File Explorer windows and right-click the items (either files and folders) retrieved by the search, I get the “open file/folder location” in context menu cf https://i.imgur.com/PPVbpLy.png
    But if I open (double-click on) a folder retrieved by that search (in this case the fodler “test”), and right-click the items displayed, then there is no “open file/folder location” in the context menu. https://i.imgur.com/46mtdi5.png
    The path for this last window is
    search-ms:displayname=Search%20Results%20in%20MotherFolder&crumb=location:C%3A%5CUsers%5CMe%5CDesktop%5CMot herFolder\test (search for “test” in folder: C:\Users\Me\Desktop\MotherFolder\test)

    It wouldn't be there if that is the file's current location.

    If you had searched for a file instead of a folder, and right clicked on one of the search results, you should then see "Open file location" in the context menu.

    Is there anyway to edit the 'Open Location' to make it open the location in a new window instead of the current window? A lot of times i find situations where a 'open location in a new window' button would make things easier.

    While I haven't been able to find a way to do this yet, I think something like this shouldn't be too complex or difficult to create if I am unable to find a way to edit existing 'Open Location' config/settings in the registry or a utility.

    Hello Woznet,

    You can press Shift + click on "Open Location" in the context menu to have it open in a new window.
