In that case, resetting folder views back to default should sort it.

Do you have all explorer windows closed when using the .bat files?

Hello Rekoon,

It does disable auto arrange for all folders. This doesn't include libraries though.

What are the locations that are not getting auto arrange disabled?

rekoon,

Auto arrange is unchecked for all folders by default after using OPTION ONE. This doesn't include libraries though.

What are the locations that still have auto arrange checked?
