Default Left Click Hard Drive Problem

Everytime i left click my drives it pops up with Search File window. anyone know why its doing this instead of just accessing the drive.

its not really that big of a problem, i can right click open. but its just pretty annoying to do.

your right-click context menu says "open" in bold letters, correct?

that makes it open the hard drive by default

Search Opens When Double Clicking A Folder


Run this reg file and reboot then see if the problem is still there
