Adobe Bridge is being the folder browser in Windows 8 instead of file explorer. When I double click a folder, Adobe Bridge comes up. I looked in control panel -> Folder Options. Also looked in 'Default Programs'. I can't find the setting to set the program for folder browser.

According to folders opening in bridge by default instead of explorer you can simply remove the handler from the registry to restore default behavior.

Just remove the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Bridge
