I finally made it back. I do not find the "FOLDER OPTIONS" button anywhere on my folder.

I am not sure I correctly attached my screen capture. It can be seen

The attached picture is of the Disk management window. You dont set folder options there.

Navigate to your folder location in Windows Explorer, then follow the tutorial.

When you open a Windows Explorer window, hit the ALT key if you don't see the menus at the top.

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
