Windows Explorer Opens New Window

When double-clicking a folder in Windows Explorer, a new Explorer window is opened rather than opening the folder in the current window.

Another symptom of this issue is, when using the Show In Windows Explorer option in iTunes, two Explorer windows are opened.

This may occur if you have uninstalled Internet Explorer, although there may be other causes.

To restore the correct behaviour:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt.

  2. Type:

    regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll

    regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

    After each instruction you should receive DllRegisterServer in <filename> succeeded.
