    I set my picture folder to "view thumbnails." I click it later and its changed back to "tiles" or some other view. How do I keep it permanent?

    Try Resetting your folder options.

    Open My Computer, select Tools, Folder Oprions, View tab, and Restore All Folders button.

    No, that setting will cause the last folder you had open when you log off to open when you log back in. Try Remember each folder's view settings.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't always work, so you may want to visit XP forgets your folder view settings? for a little more info on this problem. :) (y)

    Well that box is already checked so I'll look at that link page. Thanks. One other thing. it doesn't occur but sporadically. But maybe I can figure out why.
