If right click context menu order = double click action

Hi World,

I have an ongoing occurance that I hope someone may be able to help with.
When i right click some icons (my computer, my docs, and some others) the
first option on the menu is open, then explore, then search, the others,...
BUT on other files the first option on the right click list is 'search'.
What happens is that when I double click those icons i mentioned above, the
action is to open the 'my comp', 'my docs' etc files... perfect... but on
other files where 'seacrch' is the first option on the menu, a double click
does not open but alternatively, brings up a search dialogue. I want to
rearrange that (right click) context menu so that a double click = open,
that is, I want 'open' to be the top option / default action on double
click..) what registry key has the order of the context menu ?? and or is
it possible to undertake some contect menu rearranging???


many thanks
