Anyone else getting this ?
Gotta fix ?
It's just driving me nuts having to change the view every time I open control panel and sometimes folders on another drive.

There's actually a registry setting that's causing this problem. It seems to randomly clear folder settings for some reason. Let me see if I can find the fix...

do you have to back up the entire registry or just those two lines? If just those two lines how do you back that up?

thanks for helping a newbie

To back up reg keys, go start/run/regedit
In regedit browse to the key you want then right-click export.

Save it somewhere as a .reg file which can be restored at a later date simpily by double-clicking it.

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!
