    The folder flags are located in the following keys :
    [HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}]
    [HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{7d49d726-3c21-4f05-99aa-fdc2c9474656}]
    [HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{94d6ddcc-4a68-4175-a374-bd584a510b78}]
    [HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{b3690e58-e961-423b-b687-386ebfd83239}]
    [HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5fa96407-7e77-483c-ac93-691d05850de8}]
    The concerned DWORD value is : FFLAGS

    You can refer to the MSDN for the FOLDERFLAGS enumeration:

    Ok. That's what I thought you meant, but wanted to be certain.

    I got the FFLAGS values used in the downloadable .reg files in the tutorial after setting the folder views.

    Do you have a solution for having full row select disabled + auto-arrange and align to grid menus, without the "refresh issue" on network shared folders?

    You can right click in the Network folder, click on View, and check "Auto arrange" and "Align to grid".

    If wanted, you could also group by "Category" to have it back to default view.

    I think you didn't read the issue description I had reported...
    Your last reply is completely off-topic.
    Checking "Auto arrange" and "Align to grid" has nothing related to the issue.

    I'm not aware of a way to avoid the refresh issue other than not having auto arrange disabled.

    Yes, but the Auto-Arrange feature is not configurable in the Details View... So, does it mean that the Auto-Arrange feature is enabled even though it is not shown as enabled (and grayed out)?

    If you use the .reg file in the tutorial to enable auto arrange again, does it still happen?

    If I execute the script "Enable_Auto_Arrange_in_File_Explorer.bat", the issue disappears.
    This is quite normal, because the FFlags FWF_EXTENDEDTILES bit (0x02000000) is then disabled.
    Actually as the [HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags] registry keys are deleted, the default folder flags are then used, which are 0x41200001 for undetermined folders.
