Its a fairly insignificant problem, but an annoying one nonetheless. I have my folders sorted in alphabetical order, but each time I leave the current folder and go back they are in reverse (View: Icons Sort By: Name). This only happens under my login. Is there an easy way to fix this without deleting my user and recreating it?

Hi Lord Jaws...

Once you have corrected one folder, click on "Tools", then "Folder Options", then "View", and select "Apply to All Folders". "Apply" the change.

Does this help?

Once you set up the a folder the way you want it go to Tools / Folder Options / View Tab .Make sure the check is next to "Remember each folders view settings".If it is not checked it won't remember. :whistling: Then apply to all folders, then apply.

TakeBK is right. Windows does limit the number of folders it will remember to 400. Download the attached file and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the file and select "Merge"...accept the change.

Reboot and see if your folder settings will hold.

The reg file you used set the remembered folders to 8000... :whistling: that ought to hold you for a while.

Do you have TweakUI installed on this machine?

Well I tried that Microsoft help page, and I have TweakUI and tried that. It must be something else causing the problem...
