    Windows (not the operating system..the things with icons...)


    I just installed Mandrake 10.1 community i think its called...


    I use GNOME 2.6 as my window manager, but it opens a new window for every icon i click, like windows 95 used to do!

    ie, if i go to computer, filesystem, /usr.... then i have 3 windows open allready before I even open a file!


    Anyone know how to change this to opening in the same window? Ive looked arround but cant see it anywhere!


    Thanks

    open a window (ex. home)
    go to edit, and then preferences
    open the behavior tab
    now uncheck the "open activated item in new window" option

    hope that helps!
