Windows Explorer does not remember library view

Hello,
I'm using Windows 7 latest version [6.1 Build 7600, NOT THE RTM] I've got a little issues with the Libraries... When in the Music library I choose "Album View" than closing the windows and back to it again Windows show the "Folder View" and not the Album view I've chosen...

How to make windows remember the view of the Libraries?

go to control panel ..... folder options...

make sure these are checked our unchecked..

CHECKED: open each folder in its own window

on VIEW TAB:

check .... launch folder windows in a separate process

check show and manage pair as a single file

that should fix you.

If you can't find that in control panel at the top right choose view by: small icons.

you will find it.

Thanks a lot.
"launch folder windows in a separate process" did the trick.

Ohh, one mroe thing... I've some "Unspecified" Folders in my Album View Libary...
although the albums are tagged propely I still see the Albums as "Unspecified" I've read before about a command called atrrib solving the problem, But I've got no idea how to fix this with the command.

::EDIT::
Found the solution: music library "arrange by.."

Sorry didn't search good enough.

Windows 7 does not remember optical drive folder view settings
It keeps reverting back to details view and sort by name. Nothing seems to affect the view settings on the optical drive. I switched from General to Music to Videos and the view settings stay the same. Is this a bug with Windows 7?

Tell folder to remember view type ie details or thumb
I am sure that XP used to remember whether a folder was last viewed in details/thumb preview mode etc. Windows 7 seems to just switch it on or off for all folders. Is there a way to get explorer to remember the way it viewed the folders the last time you were in that folder. Cheers, Lee
