I attempted to change the icon for file folders the other
day, and despite not touching anything to do with the
actions for folder, my default action was changed
to "Search". So now, I have to right click and
select "Open" or browse through the directory tree in the
Folders sidebar. Going back to Folder Options> File Types
gives me no apparent options to set the default action
back. Can I fix this without reinstalling Windows?
