AutoCAD 2008 Question


I recently just started using 2008, and whenever I open a new drawing using windows explorer, a new AutoCAD window open up. How can I get it to open a new drawing within the existing AutoCAD window, instead of opening a new window each time I want to open a new drawing?
Thanks for the help.

this is the same question posted to autodesk's forum
this is answer from the posts, if you don't want to look through it:
Windows explore>tools>folder options>file types>(Find)dwg>advanced
Then set it up like the picture. The first part of the path is cut off to
show the end which is more important!
and here is the picture he's referring to (if it stays live on their server):
