Windows Explorer Layout

Posted: 06-19-2006, 10:35 PM
Hi! Always I open a new window of Windows Explorer, the layout I previously
organized is completely resetted to default. I mean, always I open a new
instance of Windows Explorer, the navigation pane is as small as the default
settings of Vista(although I strech it every time I open a new Explorer
window), and the preview pane has always another size (although I set it to
large and lock it every time I open a new Explorer window). I tried to
uncheck the "Remember each folder's view settings" option in Folder Options,
hoping this would make layout setting universal for every folder, but it
doesn't really changed something. Can anyone help me? Would be very
appreciated! Thanks

Hello,

You are half way there!

1) You need to browse to a standard folder. For example, your C:\ drive from
Computer will work nicely.

2) Set up the window the way you want it

3) Click Organize -> Folder Options

4) Click the View tab

5) Click Apply to Folder

6) Click Yes to confirm your intentions

Also note that there are a few special folders that do things their own way,
such as your Pictures folder and Videos folder ... you will have to set them
up individually.

Have you tried folder options, view tab. Apply to all folders?

Well I dont have a fix for the left to right problem of the folders pane but
as far as the up and down, try this:

Move it up to where you want it
Then hit the down arrow next to the word "folders"
That minimizes it
Then hit it again (now its an up arrow)
That brings it back up to where you left it.
Then close Explorer and open again. See if that makes it stick.

Hi.
Each time I start the Windows Explorer, I have to resize the window, move
the folders pane up and increase its width. Why couldn't be this remembered?

Thanks,
Jan

Hi Ecat,
thanks for this tip. The problem is, that the folder pane is anchored to
the bottom, instead of to the top. It should stay in the same location
during resize. Hopefully this will get fixed. Thanks for the hint, it
works - at least for the one location I set it in.

There's a function in Computer > Organize > Folder and Search Options (this
is Build 5472; I don't recall seeing the 'Search Options' in the last public
Beta) > View. "Remember each folder's view settings", which now seems to work.

There is also something there called "Display simple folder view in
Navigation pane", which I can't figure out.

Hi,
Thank you for answer. Unfortunately I am not the lucky man who could have
5472, but it is fine that this works now. But if this setting is remembered
for each folder's view, will the navigation pane resize on every folder
change?

The Display simple folder view in Navigation pane is in the Folder options
and in short it hides the tree lines and prohibits you to have more than one
folder expanded in the treeview.

I think the Windows Explorer has quite large number of bugs which are the
only ones which really slows my work down and makes me feel a little bit
unconfortable in Vista. I've tried to report them with the Feedback tool but
since I'm not in the beta subscription of connect program I wonder if they
get any attention, since all returned with External resolution.

Jan.
