    One problem I've had with Win Vista is that when I open a folder it is always rather small and I have to enlarge it to scroll. I Win XP you could set folder views for all folders to be the way you wanted them. I can't see a way to do that in Win Vista. Is there a way? Perhaps with the Registry? I would like all my folders to open to a set size, but not full screen.

    folders appear in Microsoft Windows as folder icons or as pictures that are contained in the folder By default.For example, when Microsoft Windows Server 2003 opens a folder for the first time, the folder contents appear in Classic view. When Microsoft Windows XP opens a folder for the first time, Windows uses a default template to display the folder contents and to view the settings based on the location of the folder, the number of files in the folder, and the proportion of special file types in the folder.

    when you change these view settings or customize a folder, Windows remembers your settings when you open the folder again. You can use the folder's View menu to change the view settings for the folder. You can use the Customize tab in the folder's Properties dialog box to modify the folder icon, picture, and template.

    Windows stores the view settings and the customizations for only 400 folders at the same time.

    there are some folder options apply to all folders.Example: both Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP hide protected operating system files, files or folders that have the hidden attribute, and file extensions . To modify these settings and other advanced folder settings that apply to all folders, administrators can use the Folder Options item in Control Panel.
