  • How to remove these unwanted feature?

    Hello there

    I'm fighting every day because I need to remove this behaviour on my Vista computers

    Whenever I open a folder and I set "details" I often see the folder as it contains multimedia files. Actually there are many documents and it could be also some jpg or some avi. BTW I usually set folder properties to show as "documents" or "all items" and it is ok until next reboot. It seems Vista does not save this setting. So, I would like to set "document" for all folders on my computer! Even folders containing mp3/avi/multimedia. I set "All Items", I set to apply also to subfolders and also "apply to all folders" on Tools/Folders Options/View/Apply to folders, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Can anyone help me out?
    Thanks so much

    If I'm understanding your situation correctly this could solve the issue: Open a folder (any folder) and set it to look the way you want all of your folders to look. Then tap that 'alt' key. You should see a menu bar appear that has the old familiar "File, Edit, View, Tools, Help" drop-downs. Select Tools >> Folder Options >> View Tab >> Click th "Apple to Folders" Button. That will set the current view to be the dafault for all folders on the computer.

    I am a little concerned that it's not remembering the way you last set it... although there might be logical explanations that I'm not aware of.

      Hi Nonapeptide

      You definitely hit the point. You did understand perfectly the point. I actually did what you told and everything is ok until....next reboot (of course the reboot is done as it should be... start/restart computer)
      I don't really understand why it does not remember the folder type.....

            Hi Nonapeptide
            I confirm that the article you sent on the link actually fixed the issue
            Thank you so much

            PS: reading the article and another related article on that page, it seems that the problem could appear again in the future, in such case a new reset of the folder or a BAGMRU Size increase could be needed again
