hi, i remember it working in th epat bur for a long while now, i have not been able to save my previous viewing style. also my quick launch changes every time i reboot. hiding some of the icons. i constantly need to unlock it and drag it along to see all the qlaunch icons. but the windows not staying full size is frustrating. any ideas, thanks.

HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM OF WINDOWS XP LOSING EXPLORER WINDOW POSITIONS AND VIEW SETTINGS
By default XP only stores Window positions and views for the last 400 folders (or windows) which means that once this is exceeded, new folders will not store their last positions or correct settings. To get round this, run Regedit and delete these two keys :
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShell
NoRoamBagMRU
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShell
NoRoamBags

Then add the following lines which will make the 400 limit increase to 1000 - should be enough for normal use.
Run Regedit, find these two keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShell
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShell
NoRoam
Add this new DWORD value under BOTH above keys:BagMRUSize (with size 1000 decimal)
Then reboot.
