MrMobodies:
Here's one I found just now:



Before it kept on defaulting the view from "details" back to "content" when searching in any folder not searched before and contains "folder" in the field instead of "path", path so I can easily see exactly where something is.

With the help of:

That solved the switching from detail to content view but still defaulted the fields.



Then I noticed that after every search and maybe "folder view" is stored in some of the numbers of that key with the preferences set so I combined it:

So I set it twice, one for the top level directory and the other for the user account folder (accessed from like desktop) after clearing the bags and seems to store the preference now.

I only did that a couple of times in Windows Vista and 7, saved it and remembered the preference from the top level directory to all the other folders.

It is the Enterprise 2019 LTSC edition I am using and I know they make changes through the updates on the regular Home and Pro editions so I don't know if it will still work for those.

I can't find a date on that page or the comments but on archive.org that page has been around since 2017:

Not sure it will stay that way

Windows explorer  files / folders views  had  and has many problems  ....   never stay the way i want,  switched to explorers substitutes like tablacus explorer, x2plorer, xyplorer  etc ....

and now with Win 11  its @%$@ than ever    :--

james_s:
It's amazing they can't seem to get something as fundamental as file explorer or search to work half as well as the one in Win2k or earlier. Search is especially worthless, even in Windows 7 it doesn't work as well as it did in earlier versions and 10 made it so much worse. I never, ever want to search the internet when I'm looking for files on my local machine.

blacksheeplogic:
A tweak to consider is to enable metered connection. Every couple of weeks you do need to check for updates but that's a minor issue compared to an unrequested reboot. I'm not spending $200.00 for the privilege of asking that my system is not rebooted as MS command.

MrMobodies:
coromonadalix, it does remember now and on setting up a new profile but when searching from the home profile (not the top level directory that's fine) I find it needs to be set once and that is it. I'll have to find out what other key is responsible for that preference.

Explorer++ is an alternative (someone on this forum mention before) that pretty much does everything I want and my requirements are small and specific.

Another thing I turned off that use to insult me:
https://www.howtogeek.com/492003/how-to-disable-the-first-sign-in-animation-on-windows-10/
First sign in animation:

--- Quote ---HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
New 32bit DWORD value:
EnableFirstLogonAnimation set to 0
--- End quote ---

I remember something like this on the first sign in: "We're polishing YOUR PC!" :bullshit:
I tried to look away for while when creating new profiles but I still saw it and it made me upset like I am suppose to be stupid and confused, don't know what I am doing and then to feel comforted by that. Perfectly fine without all that nonsense.

I don't have that problem anymore.

I can start/stop and it won't default and write the keys to lock me out of the Task Scheduler Updater folder and the services.
