The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Make sure that only one window is open to Windows Explorer. Close
WE, open it again, and then try it again.
(The Apply to All Folders just governs the View tab -- list, icons,

If it still doesn't work, click Restore Defaults on any page in

You'll have to go back to the View settings and make whatever
changes you made initially.
