Can't get Folder Options/View to work

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and I notice the Tools/Folder Options/View /Apply to folders, doesn't seem to work. It didn't work in Vista either. Is there a fix for this? Thanks.

works on my win 7 can you using the snipping tool (type snipping in search) make screenshot of the folders tab and upload it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form

thanks

What are you trying to change in the view tab?

Could be a conflict in content type. Setting the custom view in a folder with metadata not contained in other folders.

When you open a file/folder, there's an option to view the contents as a thumbnail, tiles, icons, lists, etc. Then you have to specify in Tools/Folder options/View/Apply to all folders. My selection of Icons never stays permanent. It always defaults back to list.

Helloo Jacatone,

Reset the folder views to see if it will remember them when you do it again after the reset.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I tried this fix but it doesn't seem to make change in the registry. Do I have to be root or something? Thanks.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

Sorry, maybe a naive query. You are, of course, clicking the "Apply" at the bottom of the window?

Yes, clicked apply.
