View Full Version : WINXP Home folder settings

18-08-2003, 11:28 AM
How do I get the folder view settings (List, icons, details etc) to stick in XP Home? I've selected every setting I can find to make them all the same, save the settings etc, but they always revert to the large icons!

Any ideas?

Open My Documents (for example). Go to View button on your toolbar and select your display from there. Then go to Tools | Folder Options | View tab | and use the "Apply to All Folders" button. Apply button and then OK.

Tried that - didn't work, which is why I am so confused?:|

Archibald's method is the one I use also. Did you ensure that only one instance of Windows Explorer was open when trying his method? You may need to close Windows Explorer immediately afterwards as well.
