"Open each folder in the same window" does not work

    If I open Explorer and select, Tools > Folder Options, and set the
    Browse Folders to "Open each folder in the same window," it does not
    hold the setting, but always acts to "Open each folder in its own
    window." If you have several levels of windows, suddenly the Desktop is
    fully cluttered with open windows.

    What would be the fix for this problem?

    Thanks,
    John
