    Windows explorer settings wont save the current window size, I've tried everything to get it saved (Use the display all folders like this one option, in the folder options) used TweakUI to save explorer settings, used Regseeker to save explorer settings, used standard Windows explorer settings to save window settings, and it still resets! I don't want to view all of my folders as webpages, (Although, I fixed that, the size of the window is still too small) but, even though I fixed the view as webpage part, the Windows folder, and program files folder still view as webpages! How can I resolve this problem? Is there a program to fix this?

    I am aware of no programs that address this Windows quirk. However, I've had the best luck in making these changes from the View - Folder Options button in an open MyComputer window rather than from Explorer.

    This is one of those things that can require multiple attempts to get it the way you want and even then it may change on you for no readily discernable reason. :doubt:

    I'm on XP-home now, and can't remember if there was an equivalent setting in my old 98SE, so this might not help.

    If you can, bump the number of folder-settings remembered WAY up from its default, it may just be that you've got enough active folders that their settings are not all being saved. In XP the default is (I think) 400, and if you exceed that then the ones not recently accessed get "forgotten".
