    Windows 10 Enterprise

    Having problems in changing icons type

    I recently started having a problem with my windows 10 enterprise and it mainly happened after experiencing a BSOD, and the problem is every time I try to change icon type from view menu it changes but just when I leave that folder and enter it again it returns to the same type again and that really annoying me, that also happens with my desktop icons every time I reorder them with my preferred order and after I make a refresh it returns to that old order again .. it's really frustrating it's like my windows having some kind of amnesia.

    P.S. All my icons were stuck to details view after that BSOD and I rarely uses this view so after searching on the net i found a .bat file that changes it to Large icons or picture view which I like it, but again it stuck with this view and I sometimes I use others with specific folders.

    Any help would be appreciated ..

    Hi I think what you mean is that the folder view setting is not staying as you set it in file explorer, rather than 'icons type'.

    Your two problems are reflected in this long thread:

    Note this is not particular to Win 10- it's occurred in other versions.
