Open Window in Explorer in XP


J

John

I have a constant problem on one of my XP Pro workstations. The bottom
of the open window's Status Bar is not checked when the View menu is
clicked. I can click Status Bar, and the Status Bar appears on the
bottom as it is supposed to, but as soon as I even change folders within
the same window, the Status Bar goes away, and I must click on View and
Status Bar again to get the Status bar.

Could someone help me restore this feature of Windows Explorer (Status
Bar defaults as checked)?

Thanks,
John

Try this John:
Go to View > Status Bar. Then, without closing the window: Tools >
Folder Options > View Tab > Press "Apply to All Folders". "OK" out of
all the dialog boxes.
You will have to change views in any folders you wish to have a
different file listing view.

Jordan,

That is the 1st thing I tried, and tried it a few times, but it does
not work for that function (to hold the Status Bar checked on). It holds
all of the rest of my preferences in that area, but not that.
Any other ideas?
John
