Registry Editing Tips

Save Window Settings

Funny why you have customized the look (toolbars, view, details) of an Explorer or Control Panel window only to find that the second window doesn't look the same as the one you have just customized. But there are ways to have your Explorer/Control Panel window keep its settings for good. Start your registry editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. In the right hand pane you'll find the NoSaveSetting key. No matter what value is given to this Registry key, the Desktop/Explorer/Control Panel settings will still be modified again after opening 29 of those windows. Delete the NoSaveSettings key. Just refresh your desktop to take effect.
