Make Windows remember your folder settings

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? Thankfully, this can be solved pretty easy with a little registry tweak.

First open the Registry Editor – open the Start menu, enter regedit in the Start menu search box, wait for search to locate regedit.exe and press Enter:

The registry editor will open:

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell using the left-hand pane:

Note for Windows Vista x64 and Windows 7 x64 users: You should navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Wow6432Node\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\ instead.

Create a new DWORD key:

And name it BagMRU Size:

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.
