    Desktop Icons Not Remembered on Restart


    I keep several folders on my desktop. I find the icon settings for the icons in those folders are not remembered when the PC reboots. For example, I like to set medium size icons but I find the details view is set after a reboot. I'm sure this used to work fine before the FCU. Is there something I can check to ensure my configuration is correct?

    If you want you can apply your folder view settings to all folders after changing view setting for a folder click View and click the icon located above Options.



    From File Explorer Options click View tab and click Apply to Folders button.
