    Hi and welcome to the forums,

    you may have inadvertedly chosen those media players as default app to handle folders.

    Open the file "~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list" and lookup the entry for "inode/directory", it should be like this:
    Code:
    inode/directory=nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;
    Here is a good explanation of what may have caused it:
