Windows Explorer Default Views
Posted on 2004-09-01
I have a PC running on Windows 98se and am having a problem with the default views in Windows Explorer.
When I open Windows Explorer the folders and files in either the C:\ or network drives are all muggled up and not in alphabetical order.
With Windows Explorer open, I have clicked on View\Folder Options\View and have clicked on the 'Reset All Folders' button as well as the 'Restore Defaults' button then clicked Ok.
I then have altered the view to display files and folders as a list and to be arranged alphabetically. I have then returned to View\Folder Options\View and clicked on the 'Like Current Folder' button then clicked Ok.
This temporarily solves the problem and the view options seem to have been saved. However, if I close down Windows Explorer then re-open it again later or go into it through My Computer the folders and files are muggled up again and are not in aphabetical order.
This is the same when saving or opening documents via MS Office 2000.
Can anyone suggest how this can be resolved please?
Thanks a lot.
