Try the following:
1. open my computer.
2.Alt-T for tools.
3.Arrow down until you get to folder options.
4.You should be in the general tab which is fine.
5.Tab once and it will probably say open each folder in a new window. This
is a set of radio buttons, and you need to use up and down arrow to select
open all folders in the same window.
6.Apply your settings, and job done, I hope.

Subject: [BCAB] Folder options in Windows XP

Hi all,

i appear to have accidentally re-set something on my PC, which means that
each time I go into a new folder, it opens a new window, meaning that if I
drill down five levels, I have five separate windows left open. How do I
reverse this setting this so that my desktop doesn't clutter?
