A nice Windows Vista feature is its new way to display folders aka Folder View. As a matter of fact, you can see them in extralarge, large, medium, small, list, detail and title mode. Folder view is without any doubt very useful, above all for those people who like organising their files by using a lot of folders. Anyway, as you may have already experienced, Windows Vista tends not to remember the folder type view settings you selected. This because Vista, by default , is set to remember folder view settings for only 5000 folders. If you want to increase this feature, let’s say to 6000 or more, here is a nice hack to follow.
- Click Start.
- In the Search Bar, type regedit and hit Enter.
- In the left pane, locate the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft \Windows\Shell
- Now, in the right pane, right click and create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value.
- Name this new Key BagMRU Size.
- Double-click on the key, select Decimal and type 6000.
- Reboot the computer for the change to take effect.
