    When using windows explorer, I like all my files to be in the "list" format, but in control panel I want to use icons. However XP keeps changing the control panel icons back to the list format. The option "remember each folders view settings" is selected but it makes no difference. Anyone got a fix for this?

    There is no fix, it's a bug. Happens to all of us who like the settings the same way you do.

    Try this

    Backup these keys just in case anything goes wrong.



    After that delete them. and restart...your folder settings should get remembered now

    Qumahlin, you are a genuis!! After countless reboots, control panel still remembers it view settings! I'm not totally convinced yet, because in the past its been OK for a couple of days and then gone back to the list format. Thanks for your help!

    Why can't M$ fix this? This has happened to me since Win95.

    MS is too busy not fixing their security vulnerabilities and not fixing the refresh why should they start a trend by fixing this lol
