The "My Computer" and My Music" folders, plus some sub-folders in My Pictures, are frequently forgetting their view settings.
My Computer and My Music are supposed to show tiles and often open with thumbnails instead. My Computer also has Show in Groups and Arrange by Type selected and these settings get lost too. The sub-folders in My Pictures are set to thumbnail view and randomly open in slideshow view.
The "Remember each folder's view" box is always checked and I've never used the Reset button at the top of the folder options.
BTW - I have around 200 folders, many of which have different views, so I'm reluctant to reset them all. I also have TweakUI; I've looked at its settings and I'm pretty sure there's nothing there that could affect it. The number of folder views to remember is set at 500.
Hello all - I've just found this thread in a search, because I have been experiencing the same problem! I also used TweakUI, but have removed it in case the setting that Kinney used was somehow at fault; no joy, though. I've looked at the KB article suggested by pc moron and checked the appropriate registry values, but they seem to be correct. I only have about 80 folders anyway. It seems to most affect folders with unusual settings; ie. my MP3s listed in details view or folders that have various different objects arranged in groups. Has anyone else had the same problem and found a cure?
