Windows Explorer Forgets View Settings

By default, Windows Explorer will remember your view settings for 400 views. After that it's "catch as catch can" . To reset and change the memory to 1000 views, do this:

1)Delete the following two keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags


2) Then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
and add a DWORD called
BagMRU Size
and give it a value of
000003e8

Then go to :-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam
make a DWORD called
BagMRU Size
and give it a value of
000003e8
