Windows 10: Remember folder's view settings - don't have that box to check

    Remember folder's view settings - don't have that box to check


    Apologies if this has been covered (surely it must have been). I've searched but can't turn anything up.

    If I resize a folder's display size on one screen, then all subsequent folders that are opened take on that size, and are displayed on that monitor, rather than remembering what size they were previously, and what monitor they were viewed on.

    I had a look at Microsoft's tips and it says check the box "Remember folder view settings" - 'cept I don't have that box to check.

    Thanks for your reply David. I did look at that tute before, but I don't want to apply the same settings to all folders (some have list, large/medium icons etc.

    It doesn't matter if I access folder options in the folder ribbon or through the Control Panel, I still don't have the Remember folder views box. The only thing under "R" is "Restore previous folder windows at logon".

    P.S. The link,Microsoft Tips, was written for Vista.
