Windows 7: Remember Folders View

Chappy, are you saying your individual folders open to their last size?

For instance, you open Music folder so it only takes up lower left quarter of screen.
Then open Videos folder so it takes up the upper left quarter.
Then close Music. Then close Videos.
When you reopen Music, it's back at the bottom, not at the top?

Nope. Still nothing.... I hope there will be a "Remember Folders View" option to check in the official version... If not, it sucks!

Falco77,

I'm happy to hear that it is working for you now. Was there anything that you did to get it to work for you?

Not really. I saw that in other folders than those in Libraries I was able tu change the view of the folders whereas in Libraries where are Documets, Pictutes, Videos etc... when you try to change the view it changes it also in the previous folders. Strange a little bit.

Yeah, that would be normal. A Library is used to group all the of the included folders from different locations in the Library together to make them easier to access. As you have figured out, all changes made in any of the included folders in a Library will be made to all of them. However, changes made Windows Explorer should be remembered per folder instead.

Windows explorer can't remember the details view on ftp folders
I set my explorer window so details and went into option so it can be the default, but when I browse a ftp folder, it still has the "tiles" by default. Can't I set details also for ftp folders ?

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
