    About a year or so ago I was having task pane problems and used Kelly's Korner "Increase Folder View Options Limit" to reset the registry to 8000. That worked. However, with new folders and adding another drive I seem to be having the problem again.

    I seem to remember something about 10,000 being tried but, 8000 was settled upon.

    Is 8000 the max or can I go higher?

    Thank you ozrom1e but, as mentioned above, I've already done that a while ago.

    Specifically, my task pane will disappear and left/right click won't work within the window. once that happens, Windows quickly gets progressively worse and I have to logoff or restart to regain access to anything.

    Are there any alterative solutions?

    Thanks
