I ran a couple of searches a day or so ago using Windows Search (and the little dog assistant thing). Got the answers I wanted, and Xed out the windows. Later, however, when I went to access data folders in My Documents, I double-clicked on the desired folder and, Presto! Up pops Windows Search! It pops up (in separate window) every time I try to open a subfolder under My Documents, and I have to resort to File>Open in order to open the folder (whereas I used to just double click on the folder to open it). I've also noticed that "Search..." is now at the top of the File listing, while "Open" is second.
Is there any way to shut the automatic search off, or get "Open" back into the default position? I can't find anything about it in the offline Help files, and Microsoft Answers forum has been a bust so far, so I've come here to look for an answer.
Just to clarify, I'm running XP Home with SP3.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
