    Hello babyv005, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Hi, does anyone know what it the latest supported version that still have this working?

    I use manual sorting very extensively and will not update unless this feature is working. Have been sitting on 1511 version for a very long time and it was fine until recently Windows Update Assistant started forcing me everyday to update to the latest version and I can't seem to make it stop no matter what I try.

    Hello Aksa, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It should still work in any version before Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703.

    Is there any way to undo the scripts and go back to the default settings?

    Hello cdb, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Use the downloadable .reg file in step 5 will reset folder views back to default for you.

    disable auto arrange is working again :).

    delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\

    Then use this reg file:

    REM Activate free sorting for files in Windows 7 www.unawave.de
    REM --- 1. Step: Add keys
    REM --- 1a for General Folders
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}" /v FFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 0x43000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}" /v Mode /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000004 /f
    REM --- 1b for Documents Folders
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{7D49D726-3C21-4F05-99AA-FDC2C9474656}" /v FFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 0x43000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{7D49D726-3C21-4F05-99AA-FDC2C9474656}" /v Mode /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000004 /f
    REM --- 1c for Music Folders
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{94D6DDCC-4A68-4175-A374-BD584A510B78}" /v FFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 0x43000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{94D6DDCC-4A68-4175-A374-BD584A510B78}" /v Mode /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000004 /f
    REM --- 1d for Picture Folders
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{B3690E58-E961-423B-B687-386EBFD83239}" /v FFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 0x43000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{B3690E58-E961-423B-B687-386EBFD83239}" /v Mode /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000004 /f
    REM --- 1e for Videos Folders
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5FA96407-7E77-483C-AC93-691D05850DE8}" /v FFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 0x43000001 /f
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5FA96407-7E77-483C-AC93-691D05850DE8}" /v Mode /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000004 /f
    REM --- 2. Step: Export everything under the key AllFolders in a separate file AllFolders.reg
    REG EXPORT "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders" AllFolders.reg
    REM --- 3. Step: Delete everything under the key Bags
    REG DELETE "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags" /f
    REM --- 4. Step: Import again exported file AllFolders.reg
    REG IMPORT AllFolders.reg
    REM --- 5. Step: Delete exported file AllFolders.reg
    del AllFolders.reg
    or use this:

    Unfortunately it doesn't save the position after closing the explorer or selection of other folder :/. Any suggestions how to fix this?

    Hello guru1d, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Technically, this is the same as what's in the tutorial.

    The version in the tutorial has the same issue. Disabling auto arrange works, but the set positions get automatically reset when closing the folder or opening another folder.

    I haven't found a way that fully works again.

    Oh I see .

    Can't someone find a way how it worked before on older win10 version or on Win7. I mean there are also tools like Desktop restore you save the position on Desktop. There must be a way to save position in Folders .

    Does somebody know a microsoft worker you can implement it again :)
