Default Adjust Window size at open

In Windows XP, when I click on a Folder, (in this case, the folder to my back up drive) it always opens as a fairly small window.

I can expand it easily, but I would prefer it open to a size large enough that I can see all of the sub folders in it.

I tried re-sizing, then closing, hoping it would remember the new size, but that didn't work.



Any suggestions, thoughts?

Thanks,
Gary

Does this help?
Make your settings for one folder, then go to Tools > Folder Options >
> View and press the "Apply to all Folders" button.

DB,
Thanks for the suggestion.
I tried it, but it didn't work.

I will try it at home later today, in case it's just a bug with this machine.

Gary
