Everytime I browse to a new folder in Windows Explorer on Vista it shows me a different view: thumbnail, details, whatever. In previous Windows versions I found a way to prevent this: switch off "remember each folder's settings" or something similar.

Is there anything like that in Vista?

Take a look at this answer of mine to What registry entries should be changed upon a fresh installation of windows?, as well as my link to Fixing Folder Type Problems in Windows Vista.

thanks for that. But before I start changing my registry, I have one question: my bags folder has got loads of entries, not one of them "AllFolders". Do I need to change them manually? – Wikis Nov 11 '10 at 20:08
No, if you delete Bags entirely it will be re-created empty; resetting remembered folder types for all folders. (Same step as here.) – Christopher Galpin Nov 11 '10 at 21:23
just saw this, thanks a lot! – Wikis Nov 14 '10 at 18:11
