    Try this

    If Windows doesn't remember folder view settings and folder views keeps changing or resetting in your Windows PC, follow these simple steps to fix this problem:

    1. Type regedit in RUN or Start search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.

    2. Now navigate to following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

    3. Under "Shell" key, select "Bags" key and press "Delete" key. It'll ask for confirmation, click on Yes button.

    4. Now right-click on "Shell" key and select "New -> Key" option. Set the name of new key as Bags

    5. Now right-click on "Bags" key and select "New -> Key" option. Set the name of new key as AllFolders

    6. Again right-click on "AllFolders" key and select "New -> Key" option. Now set the name of new key as Shell

    So the final key path will be:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell

    7. Now click on this new "Shell" key and in right-side pane, create a new String value and give it name as FolderType and set its value to NotSpecified

    [​IMG]

    8. That's it. Either restart your system or log off and now Windows will no longer forget or automatically change your customized folder view type settings.

    Hope this helps.
