Hi all, for some reason when I now double click any drive (including zips cd
ets) instead of opening the drive to show its contents it goes to the search
page?

also I have noticed that "search" is at the top of the drives' right click
menu
shown in this jpeg:

I am not sure how this happened, and I can't for the life of me find the
place to correct this seting?

any ideas?

thanks, Robert
