    Remembering View Settings, Sort by Setting and Thumnails ?

    Could anybody tell me why windows can't remember my view settings, sort by settings and thumnails ?

    I have different types of view settings for different folders but everytime I restart my computer they change. Same thing with thumbnails expect they seem to last a couple days before disappearing, sometimes a thumbnail will appear on a different folder then it was set to.

    This is incredibly frustrating, I'd appreciate it if somebody could help.

Folders - no columns to sort files in list view
I much prefer the "list view" in my folders but I don't see way to add "columns" to list view. The only folder view showing these sort tabs is "details" view. Can anything be done about this? Thanks
