I've recently reinstalled Win98 and I'm now constantly having to maximise folder views and rearrange icons despite having the appropriate options ticked; ie, Remember each folder's new settings and ... make all folders look the same. What have I missed?
Hi GRFT. In th eshortcut you use to open Windows Explorer, if you right click and select Properties, at the bottom you will have the options to run in Normal Window (the window it was in when you last closed it), Maximised, or Minimised. If you select Maximised, Windows Explorer should always open as a full screen. In the Target window, the command should be C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /e,C:. The e switch cases Windows Explorer to open in the normal Windows Explorer view. The C: part can be changed to whatever drive and folder you want to be open.
Many thanks for the suggestions but I was able to have a look at the previous installation, which worked OK, and found the setting that was causing the problem: from View -> folder options -> settings, select from the Browse Folder Options "Open each folder in the same window" and NOT "open each folder in its own window." Everything was then fine. Thanks again.
