    For some reason I set My Documents folder to be viewed as tiles but evertime I open My Documents it's different everytime. One time it's List and another it could be Icons, or Thumbnails. This happens on both my hard drive and all my folders on different partitions. Is there a way to make Windows remember what I set it for, it's becoming a real pain in the butt. I'm pretty sure it started happening after i ran some tweaks from the XP Tweaking Guide I got from this site. But I don't know what tweak may have done it. Thanks for any response in advance.


    If this helps any:

    Windows XP Pro
    P4 1.8 ghz
    756 Rambus
    Radeon 9700 Pro
    Santa Cruz Turtle Beach Sound

    go to tools --> folder options

    click on the "view" tab

    scroll down and you'll see an option for "remember each folder's view settings"


    set the folder to the way you want it, then go to tools --> folder options

    click on view

    then "apply to All folders"

    then make sure the "remember each folder's view settings" is unchecked

    By default XP remembers only 400 folder settings.
    You can increase this number by adding a D-Word value named BagMRU Size to these registry keys

    Double click on BagMRU Size and assign a number to it. I've mine set to 4000.
