For those reading who need solution to the same problem, when you get to
the last step in Johnny's explanation, I made the decision to move the
selection 'Open Folder' to the top of the list. By highlighting 'Open
Folder' then to the right where it says (something like) Move up, you
click on Move up until 'Open Folder' is at the top of the list.
Apparently if that is not the correct choice in your particular
situation, you just try one of the other choices, move it to the top and
see if that cures the problem. Keep doing it until you choose the
correct one. I chose correctly for my situation. It worked, first
try. Johnny O is the genius in this situation though. Thanks! Johnny.
