    ever since I installed Win98 all of my folders have had the "view as webpage" option on, where it tells you the name of the file you have highlighted on the left, and shows you a preview of the picture if it is one. But about a week ago, my folders stopped doing this and I dont know why. I often click "view as webpage" but as soon as I close the folder it goes back to not being viewed as a webpage.

    How can I make all my folders view like a webpage?

    If the Folders are not holding that setting there could possibly be a registry entry causing it. Go to start>run and type regedit. Press enter. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    And then to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Click on Explorer and look in the right pane for this entry:
    NoSaveSettings. If it's there and has a value of 1, either modify to a value of 0 or delete the entry entirely. Reboot.

    Occasionally that happens to me. All the folders get reset and sometimes resetting them individually doesn't hold. What eventually sorts it out is to open Windows Explorer, set the "view as web page" option there, then go to View>folder options>view and click the make all folders " like current one" tab
