I am running windows XP on my main system and it does not seem to want to save user settings. I can set a folder to show details, eliminate the details I dont want to see and set arrange icons by name and show in groups. When I reboot the folders have lost those settings.
Double-click My Computer, then Tools>>>Folder Options.
Click the view tab then scroll down and look for the setting
"Remember each folder's view setting"
Ensure this is ticked.
Then you should be able to assign different views for each folder, and Windows will remember them.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
