    File Explorer does not apply folder options since updating Win10 1903


    Hello guys,

    I've been experiencing the following issue. If i do right click on folder/properties/customize/optimize this folder for: and select any option, it does not apply the selection to the folder. It always stays on (General Elements). It is broken since i updated to 1903.

    This is really annoying because i have more tha 1000 folders of pictures and now all of them are in this form (general elements). I tried to select them all and apply the new folder view option and nothing happen.

    The way i kinda workaround it is to opening the ribbon option "view" select thumbnails and that is. But for instance, if the folder is for audio, i can't have all the sorting option tha came with the specific folder customization.

    I´m on Windows 10 Enterprise 1903 (18362.239)

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Regards

    :)

    Win10 Home - Explorer Will Not Remember Folder Settings

    Hello,

    Just want to confirm you've already completed these steps:

    1) Open File Explorer, and go into the drive you want to apply these settings to.

    2) At the top of your explorer, select View, and List in the Layout section.

    3) Select Options at the far right in View

    4) Select the View Tab at the top, and select 'Apply to Folders'

    This should all the changes you're after to all folders in this drive.

    If you only want to change the view settings on particular folders without affecting the entirety of file explorer, select only a specific folder and follow the steps above.

    If this doesn't resolve your issue, I will provide additional information.

    File Explorer will not read a specific folder after update to 1903 from 1809.

    File Explorer will not read a specific folder after the update to 1903 from 1809.

    I open "File Explorer", scroll down to the folder in question, left click on the folder, the contents (files) display for about 2 seconds then the folder closes and "File Explorer" also closes.



    I have tried to rename it but get the same results.

    I have checked the Property(security) with that of folder close by and it is the same.

    I have deleted the original folder and created a new folder but with the same results.

    Opening other folders with "File Explorer" is no problem, just this one specific folder.

    Any suggestions or a possible fix.
