Hi jess32! Welcome to G2G!

The following will at least change the action of opening the search function when you double-click a folder to open it. I don't know if it will change the text in the right click menu, so let me know if it does.

Please right click this LINK, choose SAVE LINK AS or SAVE TARGET AS, and save it somewhere on your computer where you will remember where it is located. Then find the file on your computer and double-click it to run it. Click YES to the warning: Are you sure you want to add the information in FILE LOCATION HERE\folderopenssearch.reg to the registry? Then reboot your computer and once rebooted, try opening a folder.

Sweet! :tazz: I knew it would fix the opening search problem, just didn't know if it would change the text in the right-click menu as well. Thanks for letting me know!
