Under Tools/Folder Options/View, make sure you have the box checked to save your view settings.
When I have a folder filled with music and movie files, I'll usually select "list" under the view menu. When I have a folder full of pictures, I prefer to have the view set to "thumbnails".
Why is it that these folder preferences keep resetting themselves? I'll open a picture folder and the view will be set to "filmstrip", while the music folders will often be set to "icons" and the movie folders will be set to "thumbnails".
Is there any way for me to permanantly set how I want a particular folder to be view, or will XP always default back?
BTW, I'm running XP Pro on a Dell 8300.
Thanks for any help!
