Q

How can I move the search option on my desktop?

When I double-click on a folder on my desktop I get the search window. If I right-click on the folder, the dialog box appears and lists three choices: Search, Open and then Explore. How can I move the search option to the bottom of the three choices?
In the registry, check the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell. Make sure the default value, which indicates which of its subkeys contain the default action that happens when you double-click a folder, is empty or contains open.
