When I do search and click result and it is a folder I am still in search context. I see in location "> search results in [some folder] > [folder I have clicked]".

How to make it that when I click result I go to the folder location directly leaving the search mode/context?

I know what you mean; that is extremely frustrating. If you do a search and then open one of the folders in the results, then press Alt+Up to go to the parent, you go back to a search window instead. >:-( – Synetech Jun 3 '12 at 23:00

I'm not sure you can make it the default "click" action (without a 3rd party utility), but you can right-click the folder and select "Open folder location" to have it navigate to the real path, in the current window.

That is, well, some solution. Maybe there is some key in registry for it? But how would it be called? – hash Jun 3 '12 at 21:22
