change order of right click commands

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

Is there a way to change the order of the right click sub commands.
When I right click on a folder I get the order..
1. Search
2. Open
3. Explore

I want to double click on the folder and have it open instead of opening a
search window.
Any ideas?
Thanks

    You can change the order.

    Arranging the Context menu
    The shell key can take more than the default value. For shell statements Windows places Open, Explore, Find,and Print first, then other Shell commands in the order they were added to the registry, then shell extension commands. By listing the commands under the Shell key you can rearrange the order.

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell]
    @="open,openinnew"
    But if you don't want to know this just type in Start Run

    regsvr32 /i shell32

    and do it whenever you mess about in file types dialog.

    cross travel a few passes through the Himalayas were the only links. These passes were used for routine migration by shepherds in search of better pastures. They also formed ancient trade and exploratory routes. Gautam Buddha a religious teacher traveled from India to China via Tibet in the sixth century B.C. spreading Buddhism. The most famous Chinese pilgrim to India was Hieun Tsang in 629-45 AD. He traveled extensively in India. Other than such solitary visits Chinese remained effectively from the Indian landmass.

    Is what I'm reading at the moment. I've not heard of Mr Tsang before, well at least not this one.

    Hieun Tsang (that's the correct spelling I think) 's name is in the History books here. I remember reading about "Hieun Tsang & Fahien" when I was in 3rd Std (Grade 3?)

    When I went to school we were
    Kindergarten, 1st class to 6th class, then 1st form to 4th form (or 6th form if one was going to university).

    Now everyone does
    Kindergarten, Year 1 to Year 12.


    Kindergarten is the first year at school. A child may go to pre school which used to be called kindergarten (as well). And why do Germans get to name everything. And they aren't kid gardens. Never seen a kid planted.
