Windows 7 Forgets View/Grouping Settings
Okay, I gotta know why this keeps happening. I set the Games Explorer to Group: Type; View: Large Icons.
I just opened it up and it's set Group: None; View: Details. Now I've read that in Vista settings weren't saved due to a sort of "Custom Folder Settings" limit; 5000 I think.
Now I have reset the folder customization back to defaults and then reinstated the desired settings. And that hasn't fixed the issue.
But it doesn't end there. When this happens I usually say "screw it" and just set it to View: Large Icons. Then every once in awhile it'll just randomly go back to View: Large Icons; Group: Type. I've even left it as View: Details, and sure enough after a few open/close-s and startups it'll switch back to the way I want it.
Games Explorer seems to be the only one that randomly picks the way to display the icons.
So, what gives? I can understand it dumping the folder settings and returning to stock defaults...but to switch back and forth just seems........odd.
