    I have a minor problem with Control Panel icons and images within folders.
    The problem is, that they do not appear in alphabetical order. e.g In Control Panel, User Accounts appears 1st in the list and accessibility Options appears last. I can click on arrange icons by name and everything will appear normal for a day or two, and then it reverts back. This also happens when opening up an images folder from a 3rd party program. e.g My Pictures Folder from Paint Shop Pro.
    Windows XP Pro
    any ideas?
    Thnx

    See how this goes>>

    How to set the folders and make them stick
    To make the folder settings stay, there are two methods,

    A) One is to delete the two registry entries (after backing them up).
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

    B) Another is to add the entry "BagMRU Size" and set it to a value greater than

    400 that is the default

    Go to:-

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

    and add a DWORD called

    BagMRU Size

    and give it a value of

    000003e8

    Then go to :-

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam

    make a DWORD called

    BagMRU Size

    and give it a value of

    000003e8
