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.
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.
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.
