Windows 7: Windows 7 constantly resets my fodler view options!

06 Feb 2020   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Windows 7 constantly resets my fodler view options!

It seems now every 1-2 days this OS is overriding my choices and resetting every folder to general items. I'm having to change folder and subfolder options too often only to have them undone a day later even without a PC restart needed. I'm getting sick of this.

I also have a similar issue by where detail view constantly resets. I opt to hide the useless "date" column and replace it with "date modified", only for it to reset again after a day. I'm getting tired of this as well.

Is there any way to flag the OS to stop this and stick to my own personal settings for folder view?

My screensaver and my power options are constantly chan
I set my screensaver to "Photos" but it is automatically being reset to "None". The same with my Power options. I set the monitor to never shut down. But then it is being reset to 20 minutes. My suspicion is that this happens when I change the Desktop background - but not always. Any ideas?
