Weird Vista Folder Problems

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I have had weird problems with my folders in Vista since I have gotten it. Whenever I go into a folder, and say I set it to view in "Medium Icons" and then close it, and the next time I open it, It would be in list mode. And then switch to large icons the next time. It is just random. Anybody know whats causing it?

I wish I knew, my folders do the same thing. It seems the folder view changes at will without any input from me...

Microsoft is probably dumping all their concentration into Windows 7, and doesn't care about Vista anymore.

Its not that I worry about it, its just that its really irritating. Like in my control panel, it changes to list mode sometimes and its hard to use. And when I set a folder to sort alphabetically, it resets and sorts in whatever order it wants to.
