Default Default Folder Settings

A while back I was attempting to change the default icon for regular folders within windows and in the process I must have deleted the "open" file action, so I attempted to recreate it. In the box asking for the default program to open with I put "explorer" which made the most sense at the time. Now no matter what settings I change in the folder options menu or Tweak UI, all folders open up in their own window. Anyone know a way that I can fix this?

If you go back under Folder Settings (in any folder), there is an option to set whether they open in the same window or a new one. That's probably what you're looking for.

Its a problem with how the folder opening behaves under the file types "Open With" setting. I already made sure that the folders are set to open in one window under the "View" tab in the folder options menu.
