IS there a way to fix this?

I've already downlowded Windows Service Pack 2 because it said it'll fix it but it didnt.

I messed with some BagMRG size stuff in the regedit and it just doesnt work

maybe I wasnt clear, I'l reiterate in case

I have windows XP.
I downloaded Service Pack 2 and even tried that BagMRU Size think through regedit.

my folder windows still stay big, even after I might change the window size and "view" (from thumbnails to say, list) and whne I close the window via the X on the right corner and re-open it, bam, its still thumbnailed icons and the folder is big again, needed to be resized.

I want eahc folder to have a unique shape (for example for my pictures, obviously thumbnails would be nice, but for shortcuts or word cocuments, list will do just fine) and some folders include only a little so I can make it a small window and others are big so they need to be big. Dont need a whole folder window expanding as big as the screen and making 98% of the screen white. is there anyway I acn do this?

Open one of the folders, Tools, Folder Options.
Open each folder in its own window.
View tab .. make sure that Remember each folder's view settings is checked.
Apply and OK out.

Did that help?
