Stop explorer opening up lots of windows
When a member of staff opens up My Comuputer they get the standard explorer window showing all their drives. If they double click on their home area an new explorer window opens with the contents in it, then if they go down say 4 folders deep they get 4 more explorer windows opening, each with the contents of each folder they have opened.
As you can imagine, the screen is now covered in explorer windows and the staff are starting to moan about it.
How do I change it to open all the folders in the parent window rather than in new windows? I know how to do it on a standalone PC, but have no idea where to change it to affect it for all these users.

If it's an option for you, you could set it up in the users profile.

Only problem is, each user has their own roaming profile, and I really don't want to go to 100 user profiles and change 1 setting.
It was setup like this before I started, I wondered if it had anything to do with the policies that get applied to the user.
