How often has this happened to you? You have just set everything about a folder (View, Sort by, Group by, folder type, etc.) and a few days later when you open the folder all your settings are gone. Not to mention that it only takes one unmount and remount for a hard drive to reset its settings. Well, this is kind of annoying, isn’t it?

Double-click on it and a new window will open:
Choose Decimal base and enter something like 10000:
Click OK, close the registry editor and you are done.
