Some of system files and folders in Windows are hidden by default. This is with idea users not to delete some important files by mistake.

If you want to see the hidden folders, go to Control Panel – Folder Options – View and check the ‘Show hidden files and folders’ radio button.

Autoit source code of “open search instead of folder” program


In my post  https://zlatipln.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=138 I had explained how to manually change registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell in order to resolve the “double click opens search instead of folder”

The program is : http://obama.110mb.com/programs/search_insteadof_open.zip

AutoIt is a very simple language, similar to Basic.

It is used mainly to automate mouse and keyboard actions.

To make an .exe file from the source text above, you have to download and install the AutoIt compiler

http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?autoit3/autoit-v3-setup.exe

 and Scite editor:  http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/downloads.shtml

They both are small and don’t takee too much place.

Then copy paste the source in Scite editor. Autoit source files have .au3 extension.

Here is the source of my program: http://obama.110mb.com/programs/search_insteadof_open.au3

First save it as somename.au3 then run it from TOOLS meny – run.

If no errors found, you can build an  .exe file from TOOLS menu – Build.

The new .exe has the same name as .au3 file and is found in same folder.
