    would anyone know why my HP running W98 will never remember the view settings for each folder? i like details, not just folders, and there are many folders i do not want to view as a web page. in folder options>view, i have "remember each folder's view settings" checked, but the view always goes back to Large Icons and View As Web Page.


    thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Try this:

    - Open a Windows Explorer window.

    - On the View menu, click Details .

    - Sort the items you way you want them, then click View (or Tools) > Folder Options > View > Like Current Folder > OK

    - Now press and hold down the CTRL key, and then, keeping the Ctrl key depressed, quit Windows Explorer by clicking Close in the File Menu.

    - Release the CTRL key.

    - Restart your computer.


    Good luck,
