Windows 7: Tweak to remember folder view and window size

26 May 2010   #1

Windows 7
Tweak to remember folder view and window size

I have shortcuts for my C:\ and D:\ drive that I pinned to my Start Menu.

I have my C:\ drive setup with List view and the window size is about 4x4 inches I would say. (See attached screenshot)

My D:\ drive is setup Large Icons view and the window is about 4 inches wide and 8 inches tall. (See attached screenshot)

Now here's what's happening. I set up my C:\ drive to the correct view and size that I want and make sure it opens correctly. I then set up my D:\ drive.

After I have completed setting up my D:\ drive the view or size of my C:\ drive would either follow that of my D:\ drive, or sometimes, the view and size on my C:\ drive would appear on my D:\ drive. It doesn't save it.

I knowthis has nothing to do with the Aero Snap or the auto resizing feature in Windows 7 as I have already disabled them. This has also nothing to do with the "Optimize folder for..." feature where Windows 7 automatically detects the type of files inside a folder because I have disabled that and set "General Items" as my default template for all folder views.

Can somebody try to mimic what I just did and see if they can replicate the issue? Maybe it's just me but I just can't seem to understand why it wouldn't save the settings that I have in Wnidows 7 when it works fine on Windows XP.
