Win Explorer Folder View Fails To Stick

By daj3245 ·
When I click View/Explorer Bar/Folders and then click Tools/Folder Options/View/Apply to all folders, it works until I reboot and then I have to repeat the process. How do I make it stick?

I had similar problems.

For some reason, XP does not always update folder views when you close Windows Explorer using the "X" in the upper right corner.

Use File / Close after changing your folder view, and the change should stick.

I recommend that you reboot after making the change.

By default WinXp remembers customized setting for 400 folders. To increase that number you need to change the following registry keys.

"BagMRU Size"=dword:000003e8

"BagMRU Size"=dword:000003e8

The dword value I have set is for 1000.
000003e8 = 1000
000005dc - 1500
000007d0 = 2000
000009c4 = 2500
