I would like to have the PC remember different views for different folders in Windows Explorer, so I don't have to keep changing. For example, I usually prefer the List or sometimes the Details view but Thumbnails is good for pictures. I know how to apply the same view to all folders (via Tools -> Folder Options -> View) but that's not what I want. I gather from searching the net that I should be able to right click a folder and call up Properties then Customise. But I've got no Customise tab. All I see is Sharing and General.
Looks like this may be somewhat outside my comfort zone - I wouldn't know how to open the Registry Editor and it sounds rather alarming! Or is it considered safe to nose around in there if I've done a System Restore first?
This is interesting. I've been into the registry and had a look. The missing sub-key that Ramesh's site suggests I should create already exists in the folder he tells me to look in. So I've taken the next step and looked for the relevant values that he describes in order to set them to 0. But there is no sign of them. I can find the keys that he's sending me to but there is no sign of:
Hmm I s see what you mean. If I right-click on the 'shared documents' folder for example, 'customise' is there as an option. So it looks like I can customise the ones I'm not bothered about but the ones I want to change I can't! ah well. I guess I'll just have to live with it. thanks for the help.
