Task 16: Changing the Folder Options
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.
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.
If you select Single-click to open an item, the contents of the window are displayed as links. Single-click any item to display its contents.
You can use the other tabs in this dialog box to set more complex view options (View tab) and to view the list of recognized file types and their associated programs (File Types). See Part 4 for more information on file types.
