I have a folder that I use frequently for daily tasks. I dragged that folder to the dock (next to applications and documents folder), and when I click on it, it will either come up as a "fan", "grid", or "list". I'd like to be able to click on the folder and have it open in a finder window. Any way to do this?

Only way I know off, is to hold down the command key and click it.

Double click on the folder to open in finder window, if that is what you mean.

Thanks for the replies. Double-clicking will not open it as a finder window from the dock, but <command + click> will, so thanks for that. I had it there previously and was able to just click and open it as a new window, but then accidentally dragged it off the dock and when I put it back on there, all I can get are the fan, grid, or list views (not opening directly as a new window). Thanks.
