Did'nt really know where to post this question

I like to keep my folders in a certain order, but sometimes vista will reorganize my files whenever i open the file folder.

Is there a way I can lock my folders in place? You know keep them in the order I want.

Hi m8dman,

Its been a while since I have done it, but I think it goes something like....

Click on View on the Menu Bar, or right click on a empty area in the Windows Explorer window.

Click on Sort By, Group By, or Stack By. Then choose the sort order you want the window to be sorted by.

Then do the following….

1. Click on Tools on the Menu bar and click on Folder Options.

2. Click on the View tab.

3. Check Remember each folder's view settings.

NOTE: If unchecked, Vista will ignore custom view settings for every folder and have every folder open using default settings instead. Only, uncheck this setting to force all folders to stop using display settings you have specified.

4. Click on Apply.

5. Click on the Apply to Folders button.

6. Click on Yes to the confirmation prompt.

7. Click on OK.

let me know if that works for you. :D
