Windows 7: Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

02 Dec 2013   #20

Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64-bit

Windows_7_Reset_All_Folders_To_Default_Folder_Views.bat: I downloaded that file in an attempt to reset the volume mixer's position, but it didn't work. It did, however, reset Windows Explorer's position. That is neat. I deleted it afterward, but later undid the delete operation. That is a handy tool. Now, is there a way that I can restore the volume mixer's default position?

This tool resets folder settings, which has nothing to do with the volume mixer.

Glad it could help Gary.

I just somehow manage to find a few things in the registry now and then.

Everything sets back to its default position, but for some reason Windows Photo Viewer does not. I dont know if its just something weird but I was wondering if there is a way to reset its position?

Hello awesomegamer75,

Usually a window will open in the same position that it was last closed at by default. You might see if placing Windows Photo Viewer where you want it to open, then close it to see if it opens there next.

Yes but I was wondering the file "Windows_7_Reset_All_Folders_To_Default_Folder_Views.bat" is supposed to put all default postitions back to those assigned windows on the OS, but I was wondering why won't do it for Windows Photo Viewer? and is there another way to fix or do it.

Windows Photo Viewer is a separate program, and is not an explorer process like a folder or Windows Explorer.

Did it open where you last closed it?

But is there still a way to reset its window position though?
