Windows 7: Hide File Types

Hide File Types

Hi All
I have seen a few posts on similar discussions but none on the problem that I am having. So I will post it here for some help. The problem I am having is that when I go to view a file or folder name in, in this case, in my photos folder, all I get is the picture with no text to reference as to what is inside the folder. I have tried all of the usual stuff (tool, folder options, and the view, (un)check the hide folder names option from the drop down). When I uncheck this option I get the names back, but when I log off and back on, win7 resets itself and I am stuck to uncheck this option again. Any way to get this turned off for good? As you can see below the hide file names option is checked, and I don't want it to ever be checked again. How do I get Win7 to recognize this once and for all? Thanks.

Are you using any customization or tweaking programs, such as TweakUI or the Windows Windows Tweaker?

It sounds to me like a program you have installed is making the changes on startup.

Could you post a couple of screenshots? I would like to see one of your Programs and Features window, and another of the Startup tab of msconfig.

Not sure if there was an easier way to get you this info. Please review. Looking forward to seeing if you see something!

Symbolic File Folder with Specified File Types?
I'm sure there's a way to do this, but it's out of my realm of digging in windows. What I need essentially is a Symbolic Folder that will scan a set directory and only return specific file types. For example, I have five folders with .jpgs, .psds, and .txt. What I would like is to create a...

When I do a search on how to sort, I get a Tutorial that tells me to open the "View" Menu item. However, as you can see from the attached, I don't have a VIEW menu on my Folder. I would like to sort these by file type so that I can save them to a CD. What am I doing wrong here?:(
