Part 3. Working with Folders > Task 16: Changing the Folder Options

Task 16: Changing the Folder Options

Click Tools and select the Folder Options command.

To use Windows classic folders (like previous versions of Windows), click Use Windows classic folders.

To open a folder in separate windows, click Open each folder in its own window.

INTRODUCTION

By default, Windows opens each new folder or drive in the same window, replacing the contents of the current window with the one you open. To open a folder or drive, you double-click. You can change these and other folder options. For instance, you can choose to single-click an icon to open it, similar to clicking links on a Web page.


TIP

Go Back to Original Settings

To go back to the original settings, select Tools, Folder Options, and then click the Restore Defaults button. Then click OK.


To single-click rather than double-click to open an item, select Single-click to open an item.

Click the OK button

The folder is displayed with the options you selected. Here you see Windows classic folders with single-clicking.
