JSI Tip 9528. The column settings that you choose on the View / Choose Details menu are NOT saved?

One possible reason for the columns that you choose not being saved is some registry keys and values that TweakUI might set.

If you have used TweakUI:

1. Make sure that REG.EXE, built into Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, or REG.EXE from the Windows 2000 Support Tools on the CD-ROM, is available on your computer.

2. Open a CMD.EXE window.

3. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after each line:

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU" /F
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags" /F
NOTE: See tip 5843 ยป How can I increase the number of folders that Windows XP remembers settings for?
