    idea How do i Memorize view settings per folder

    Hey Guys,

    I would like to know that how do i memorize the view settings i.e. icon / list / thumbnails / etc on a per folder basis? I'm running Windows Xp on my system and it keeps me showing everything in detailed list. So does, any one have any idea that how can i do so? Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could make the change in the registry by modifying these two entries:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam. Creating a DWORD called BagMRU Size for each of those registry keys and assigning it a decimal value of 5000 would fix the folder settings.

    I once did a Tools--> Folder Options--> "Apply to all folders" (namely when I defined "Details view" as default). You can also click "Reset All Folders" which can also reset your folder settings option.
