XP Forgets Folder settings and reverses file names. This one drives me crazy. XP nearly always shows my files or folders as a Thumbnails, no matter how I set the folder (usually) in details view, but just to confuse me not every time. Arghh

Also when I am saving a file it always shows the folder list in reverse alphbetical order. I have reset every folder every time to an alphabetical order but when I go back it has reversed itself. once again Arghh

Seriously thinking of reverting back to W98.

Any help is really appreceated.

Try this:

open My COmputer, go to tools, then Folder Options and click on 'Reset All Folders'. Then close any open windows, open MY comp again and customize your the way you like it.. then go to folder options again abnd click on 'Like Current Folder'. Also, somewher out there (advanced settting) is a checkbox stating 'remember folder settings'. Make sure is checked.

Maybe that 'll help

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
