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. Edited by tao muon

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: Edited by HoochieMamma

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?

I'm assuming you're not using Windows, right? :)

I have this problem too, the only view that seems to stick is my computer!

recycle bin, documents, music, general folder views, add/remove always keep change from details to icons, or from icons to details etc, really annoying.

True. But what a crappy feature that is, depending on the content the folder has, the fields shown for that folder will vary. I like name, date modified, etc. The moment you put a music file in a folder, those fields change to whatever windows thinks it's convenient, like "artist" and "album". And maybe the folder contains just a couple of songs. Not to mention the folder icon will change too, overriding whatever setting I had before.

But there was a way to prevent this particular situation I had just described, with a registry tweak... I read it on neowin

This happens to me when rearranging icons on my desktop I found out if you shut down your computer the "correct" way it will work. So Using the shutdown button. But if you just press the power off button it doesn't so maybe its probably explorer.exe shutting down to fast to save everything. and maybe it keeps a copy of your details only when its powered down? I don't know but it works for me.

Been haveing this problem with ALL versions of windows till now. Vista is probably the least worst, but i have seen the problem. Seems like this is a very hard bit to program for the sorry MS guys.

And why is the columns in details view very, very small. I have to keep right-clicking on the tiitle head and click "Size all culumns to all" on every folder. How do I make it the default.
