When i change the view (icons / thumbnails / list, etc.) in a folder, i find that Windows changes, at random, the view settings for other folders on my hard drive. If i try and re-set the ones its changed, it alters other ones at random. Has anyone else come across this problem or have any suggestions as to how i might stop this happening and keep the folder settings how i want them??!
Also in explorer select the folders you want to change RIGHT CLICK choose Properties CUSTOMIZE (SIC)tab. You can alter the view of the folder from the drop down template list and the tick box underneath decides if you want to apply to subfolders.
I haven`t noticed anything going wrong since I discovered these two little tips - experiment and let us know
'Remember each folder's view settings' was already checked - i can change the view of the folder i'm in succesfully, the problem is that when i do that, i find another random folder's settings have been changed, so nothing stays as i set it for long... any more suggestions?
