|Vista Folder Type Selection|
|Thursday, 02 October 2008 09:11|
Problem: By default Vista will choose the view of your folder by its contents. Although it's mostly acceptable there are a few folders that behavior is very annoying for me. I have a download folder that is constantly resetting to 'Pictures and Music' or the 'Music Detail' view.
Fix: Although I could not find a way to lock one folder down, I did find a way to disable automatic folder template type selection completely.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ; Reset and delete all saved folder customizations and settings. [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU] [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags] ; Turn off Vista auto folder type template discovery. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell] "FolderType"="NotSpecified"
