Presentation of details view is not remembered in Windows 7

In Windows 7, the layout of the details view is not known! I can use settings to force Windows to remember I want the Details view for specific files. However, he can't remember the EXACT details, I want the file to display.

For example, I NEED to 'Name', 'Authors' and 'subject' to the categories displayed in the Details view. I continue to remove other options and selecting these three fields. However, as soon as I leave the folder and then come back, he reconnects with details of the name/Date/Type/size/Tags by default and it drives me crazy.

This has never been a problem in XP... the views of folders (including the exact details of display in Details view) were never changed unless specifically, I changed the. Is there a way to fix this in Windows 7?


I suggest you perform the steps:
a. Open a file and make the changes you like.

b. press Alt to display the menu bar. Click Tools -> folder options.

c. click on the view tab.

d. press the "apply to folders" button.

e. click apply , and then click OK.

To apply the current view setting to other folders

I hope this helps.

  • Word and the calculator do not remember last window position when opening

    I have a problem with the position of the window for Word and calculator.  They don't remember the last position when open.  I tried numerous strategies online such a ctr + close, etc..  What happens is that they will remember the position of the next 2 times they open and then, when opened for the third time, they pass to the left corner of the upper screen.  Excel, Explorer, etc., seem to remember the last screen position and size.  Why not the word and the calculator?  Running Windows 7, 64 bit, Dell 24 inch monitor.  I would like to than the calculator to always open in the lower right corner.  All the patches?

    Thanks for these suggestions.  The problem occurred at any time in the past.  Surprisingly, before me, start to implement your suggestions, there was a series of 15 + / Windows updates.  After these updates, problem solved.

    Don't know why it happened to Word and Excel or Outlook, as they are all of the same suite of Office 2010.  Before post me my question, I did re install Office, and he did control the problem, but only briefly.  I'll see if these new Windows Update solves the problem for a longer period of time.  Hope so.

    This view of details will be available when I download the report. Because when I tried to download the report in the format view report is downloaded, but I want the detail view to have downloaded.

    Is it possible to do so. I tried to do what I asked in post - added information the head and foot for the interactive report

    No, the detail view is not included in the IR PDF/Excel download. Any print server you are using, download of base is based on attributes of the print report.

    Please do not question open for each feature or report of the IR. (detail view of know and now you open for graphic/pivot).

    To summarize some report layout you want, you can design in rich TEXT/XSL-FO based on models and you can associate with your IR report. So that when you download the IR in PDF/Excel you will get the required i.e. details display page/detail header/footer.

  • Are you remember places window and on dual monitor Mac palette

    Mac OS 10.11.4 (El Capitan)

    Mac Pro (early 2008) 8 GB of RAM 2 x 2.8 Ghz

    This Mac two monitors has been improved lion in El Capitan yesterday. All right, except that it's not remembering places window between start-ups. So if I drag my Safari window to the 2nd monitor, and then quit and restart the Mac... Safari opens again on the 1st monitor. This is true for all applications... it seems that window locations are "memoirs." I have to rearrange my windows during each session. It's not just Safari... that's a lot of applications (calendar, Pages, Numbers, Safari, Mail) but not all (Calculator, App Store and others remember their positions of windows).

    Adobe CS6 application palettes (palettes of tools of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) go to my first monitor any time I switch to another application, and then return. For example... my palette of 'pages' is placed on the second monitor, then I switch to Illustrator and go back to InDesign (not to quit, logging, etc. just an app switch) and all my palettes will jump on the first monitor.

    What is going on? How can I stop this behavior? It becomes quite boring.

    More info: places of window seems to remember on monitor 1, but if something is moved to monitor 2 and then the location of the window is forgotten the next time the application is started.

  • In the detail view folder sizes. What Microsoft has to do not display a list of folder sizes in the detail view? I don't want to post this in the comments...

    What Microsoft has to do not display a list of folder sizes in the detail view?  I want to just see my folders in the list view and know how big each folder is!  Is this a lot to ask?  Are you (MS) collusion with folder size software companies so that they can sell me something that should simply be in Details view? Is it because it could slow down my experience of 'Windows' that is not so great anyway.

    I don't like what MS has to say.  This is not a plea (or tip) for them to fix. I just want to know why they avoided (5 180 000 results according to Google) millions of requests for this feature Microsoft Users: why do you think that Microsoft has deliberately chosen to omit a column of 'folder size' seen in the window?

  • List of commands not to link through to the detail view

    Hi all, I create a list of orders in a secure area, each command must make a link to the invoice for this order (the detail view). I read:



    but can't seem to bind the list of orders in the detail view.

    My list template is:

    < li >

    < span class = "col1" > {tag_invoicedate} </span >

    < span class = "col2" > {tag_invoicenumber} </span >

    < span class = "col3" > {tag_invoicetotal} </span >

    < span class = "col4" > {tag_status} </span >

    < /li >

    Are one of these tags to link to the detail view? I searched further tags that link to the detail view but can not find.

    Thanks for your response in advance.


    Hi Karl,

    {tag_ordername}, that's what you need to add. Which will automatically create the link to the detailed view.

  • JavaScript and the detail view


    I can't find an example anywhere online, but I have a problem with the idea that I'm the only one with this problem! I just created a brand new application with nothing in it, and it does the same thing, so I don't know what else to do.

    The problem: I have a page with an interactive report in it. This report offers a detailed view. I have a few javascript placed in script tags in the section "after lines. The script runs when I first consider the report and whenever I update the page, but if I move to the reports and display back to the detail view, the script does not run. How can I run whenever you view the retail version?

    My accurate measurements, with Apex
    To create the new application, the type of database, from scratch.
    * Call "Test Javascript", do it from scratch.
    * Create a blank page called 'hand '.
    * Without tab.
    * None of the shared components.
    * Application Express authentication by.
    * Theme 1.
    * Finish and change the home page.
    * Click on the button 'Create' the area' on this page' superior right (ish) and
    * Report
    * Interactive report
    * Title 'Test', click Next
    * Query: select 'blah' double blah
    Create a region
    * Right-click to Test and modify attributes of report
    * Click on the tab of the detail view
    For the each line: < p > Test: #BLAH #.
    * Once the lines: alert < script > ("the script is running."); < /script >
    * Detail view enabled = Yes
    Apply the changes
    * Run

    When I click in the detail view, nothing happens. When I refresh my page via the browser, the script runs. When I refresh by clicking on "view details" once again, or click on back and status display, it doesn't. When I log in again and he remembered my previous opinion, it runs the script the first time.

    I tried with Firefox 3.6.15 and Chrome 10.0.648.127.

    Thank you!

  • On one site, Mozilla Firefox does not remember my password, but Internet Explorer doesn't.

    Yesterday, I accessed my Bank Web site. I entered the account #, then the password. I got an error message on the password, even though I was pretty sure that the password is correct. I clicked on 'do not remember the password' and received the same password I had entered. I was really puzzled, but tried again. It still does not work. I then tried Internet Explorer after the advice of my Bank rep. I created a new password on Internet Explorer and managed to get the law through the Web site. Later, I tried Mozilla Firefox with the original password. Yet once again, the password was not accepted, but when I asked to have access to the correct password, they gave me the new password I was entered on Internet Explorer. I am very confused. Help, please!

    Once you have changed your password, the OLD password is no longer valid. You must use the NEW password to access your account, regardless of the browser you use.

    Note: This will be you temporarily disconnect all sites, you're connected to.

    2. Under "Time range to clear", select "all".
    3. Now, click the arrow next to details to toggle the active details list.
    4. In the list of details, see the Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything.

    Firefox does not remember the password or user name. Have done everything suggested, still no luck.

    Do you hear the names and passwords in the password manager or do you mean that you are connected is no longer on to (remember to) Web sites after the closing and restarting Firefox?

    There is a difference between remembering the name and the password in the password manager and a check box "remember me" on a web page.

    The latter usually involves the creation of a special "remember me" cookie that is stored on your computer and which is sent to the server.

    If that "remember me" cookie is deleted or is corrupted or is not send to the server, then the server remember that you and you must connect once again.

  • Safari does not remember previous page n gets all white.

    Safari does not remember previous page n gets all white. For example, if I visit Facebook and you want to brush on the mouse on the previous page, I come to my homepage (google). Can click on a photo in Facebook, then click down, cause the page is all white after that. This happens in many sites like Ebay, etc. I've been looking for others this problem now, but cannot find someone with the same problem. So what to do?

    Go step by step and test.

    Safari > Preferences > advanced

    Tick the box "Show develop menu in menu bar."

    Develop menu will appear in the Safari menu bar.

    Click on develop and select 'Empty cache' in the menu dropdown.

    Safari > Preferences > privacy > Cookies and other data from the website:

    Click on the button "Details".

    Delete all cookies except those from Apple, your internet service provider and the banks.

  • Cannot view thumbnails by using the detailed view

    I'm unable to view thumbnails in windows Explorer while I'm using detailed view.  I can't see them when they are Extra Large.  I don't see their small, not in the list, not in an environment... just to Extra Large.  I hate them Extra Large.  I want to display in the detail view.

    That's what I've done so far:

    Under Folder Options / I "Unchecked" view on the "always show icons never thumbnails".  It does not work.

    I go through TONS of problems with thumbnails in the forums, but couldn't find a solution to my problem.

    I use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  I never had a problem with thumbnails under Windows XP.  Now I'm fighting and I want to show my nail of the thumb again.

    I don't know what I can do.  I must be missing something in the settings; But what?

    Can anyone help?

    Hi sunrize1230,
    Have you changed the settings of the Visual effect as well?

    First of all I suggest you open the Visual effects settings.

    This is how you do it:
    1, click Start
    2. open the control panel (all items vew) and click the tools and Information on performance.
    (A) click the link advanced tools in the blue left pane.
    (B) click on adjust them the appearance and performance of Windows liaison, then close this window later.
    4. you will then see the Visual effects settings to select.
    5. check 'Show thumbnails instead of icons'
    6. click on apply and then ok

    If this does not work, create a new user account and check.
    If it works fine in the new user account, set the damaged user account.

  • How can I add more details in the Details view

    When you display files in Details view, you have the option to add more columns/details by right clicking on the column headers, you can chosse from a long list anything from an e-mail address to a phone number... How & where can I change these details?

    1. the fields from and to which appear in the list of options of details apply to the and see you in Outlook?

    2. When you change these >

    I don't know the answers to any of these questions.  I did a little experiment from saving an email (xxx.msg) in a new folder.  I made the following observations:

    1. in the file properties, were the only items in the tab "Details":

    • Name
    • Type
    • Folder path
    • Size
    • Date of creation
    • Modification date
    • Attributes
    • Shared with
    • Owner
    • Computer

    2. None of the above can be changed.

    3. There is also a "Custom" tab in the file properties.  This is a list of 27 'elements of properties' that you can manually add to the metadata of the file.

    4. the worms and from the items in the list of details in the submenu "Chose the details" menu of the folder view do not display the sender or the recipient of the original e-mail.  Even if the custom details that can be added is "Received from", information entered into this field (which appears if you look at the "Custom" of the file properties tab) do not show if you add 'From' as one of the columns to display in the folder.

    If you want to dig deeper into that, you might try asking in the TechNet Windows 7 User Interface forum or possibly the Microsoft Community forum Outlook or Outlook TechNet forum. If you ask another forum, provide a link to this thread so that potential stakeholders must not repeat things already said.

    It is highly possible that files recovered
    were partially crushed. If the technology who have recovered
    files had success by viewing... maybe you
    could ask him what software he used.

    You can view the files in Windows Paint?

    If you have no success in the file display... the
    more info can be useful...

    There is software that can be able to
    Restore files. If you want to experiment...
    the following programs of detail may be worth a try.

    Good luck...

    The following programs are not free, but the demo
    versions will be preview files that can be recovered.
