How can it be that MS not notice this bug? Folders losing their view settings? Perhaps they tested Vista based on newbie usage and not heavy usage.

Why is it that when I set my personal folder to show thumbnail like on a default install. then when I come back later, it's in small details view and I have to change to back to thumbnail.

Please, MS test it by browsing loads of folders..I mean lots of it. Not 20, but hundreds. Remember Vista have like a million folders and for one thing it won't remember settings for every of it like it SHOULD. If I say Pictures folder should have thumbnails then I mean it! But no, I gets faced with a Pictures folder in basic format and details list - no picture-related tools.

Obsivously this IS a bug.

I don't have that problem. Every folder I choose to change the view on renders the way I left it when I next visit it.
Even the folders of other users on the computer when I give myself the proper priveledges to view them. I'm the administrator and others are not.
They see the folders the way they left them, and I see them the way I want.

It's not a bug.
Views are dynamic: so a folder view changes according to its contents

Man, you'll defend Microsoft no matter what they do won't you? How do you explain the numerous times custom tabs at the top of Add/Remove programs get removed when you access them via Control Panel? I have "Last Used on" and "Version" set as well as the rest set by default, I don't do anything in terms of removing/re-installing anything and I go in there and they either disappear or have the Extra Large icons option set (That happens sometimes in CP every so often too) How is that a feature? :wacko:

I'm experiencing this too and it's incredibly annoying.

Right now my download folder has for some reason decided to do the groups thing and group everything by name, even though I have never set it to do this. That seems to be the most common thing for me.

I just want everything to be in details view, with no grouping, across ever single folder unless I state otherwise, without them randomly changing. Is that so much to ask?
