When I click on a folder to open it, I get the Search
window. Where can I go to specify open instead of search?
If I right-click, Search is in bold and open is next. Any
help, please?

Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types and look for Folder. Highlight
it, select Advanced and change the options in the window.
