I can confirm this DOES NOT WORK
The more I use Windows 7 the more I am planning on staying with MAC and Hackintoshing more computers. They might have fixed some problems but they created many they did not need to create. The new Windows Explorer is HORRIBLE, did it need changing? NO NO NO
Microsoft really doesn't get it. They are like the Detroit automakers, heads in the sand believing they dominate the market so they don't have to make what the users want. But MAC will continue to gain market share until MS looses their dominance and then it will be too late.
QUOTE=LFB;130264]i don't know if we are talking about the same thing... but i've always use this fix for Vista and now for Seven: How to Fix Annoying Folder View Type Problem in Windows Vista (and Seven)
This trick will reset the folder view settings and will completely disable
the automatic folder type discovery feature, so you'll not face this problem any more. Windows will always use your custom view settings for all folders.: So follow these simple steps to fix this problem: 1
. Type regedit in RUN or start menu search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor. 2
. Now navigate to following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell 3.
Under "Shell" key, select "Bags" key and press "Delete" key. It'll ask for confirmation, click on Yes button. 4.
Now right-click on "Shell" key and select "New -> Key" option. Give the new key name of Bags 5.
Now right-click on "Bags" key and select "New -> Key" option. Give the new key name of AllFolders 6.
Again right-click on "AllFolders" key and select "New -> Key" option. Give the new key name of Shell 7.
Now click on this new "Shell" key and in right-side pane, create a new String value and give it name of FolderType and set its value to NotSpecified 8.
That's it. Either restart your system or log off and now Windows will no longer reset/change your custom folder view type settings.[/QUOTE]
