WINDOWS VISTA FOLDER VIEW
Approximately 6 year old computer with Vista home premium, never connected to the internet.
Has been in to the shop to have DVD/RW drive and mother board replaced.
Since then I have been completed frustrated in trying to re-establish the folder views the way I like them.
Previously, what I had & desire in picture & video folders was:
icons in the main frame, thumbnails in the details pane.
None of the folder options settings seem to do this consistently.
And when I do make changes that do what I wish, they seem to change back at random
Files and folders
NO Always show icons, never thumbnails
NO Always show menus
YES Display file icon on thumbnails
YES Display file size information in folder tips
YES Display simple folder view in Navigation pane
Hidden files and folders
YES Do not show
No Show hidden
YES Hide extensions
YES Hide protected operating system file
will give me what I want momentarily, but after clicking
APPLY TO FOLDERS
and closing the folder, the previous setting, which is:
icons in the main window and icons in the detail pane
returns when I reopen the folder later
I have looked at, among other suggestions:
the registry fixes (ie making certain values larger) that they suggest
all seem to have been done already
does anyone have any other suggestions
