    Hello Sarah, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you mean for your folder view settings getting reset back to default, then you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before applying the .bat file.

    System Restore Windows 10

    In the future, you can backup your folder view settings to be able to restore as needed.

    The only problem is that it requires admin priviledges which I do not have.

    Are you able to ask an administrator account to do a system restore for you?

    In that case, you will need to manually reapply your folder view settings.

    No new news. This feature appears to be permanently broken.

    I am wondering why there is no alternative file explorer with this feature :/

    To Brink, maker of the blessed disable-auto-arrange-thing: any chance you can fix it so it will work again? I remember you also explained a way (long ago) to do it manually - is that risky? Possible?
    Whatever the answers, thanks for making my life a lot better for so long.
    This auto-arranging business was the nightmare, litterally, that i kept at bay by sticking to W7. 3 Days ago i surrendered, because i read your trick still worked. Since that i'm lost in a alfabetical, valueless world.What's more, what if this lack of incentive to create one's own hirarchy of importance in subject generates alfabetical generations, having no training in discriminating between right and alt-right? (Sorry if that's too much, it's s how my mind works)

    Hello Lisa, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Good to see you from Seven Forums.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a way to make it work again.

    Thanks so far,
