Adjusting "My Computer" Default Screen Size
Posted 30 May 2012 - 09:20 AM
If I can describe this right ... when I click on My Computer or Control Panel, they will open in a large default size window. I adjust them down to a smaller size that I prefer but when I open them again ... it's always back to that larger default size. I have set the size I want many times but it never holds. I searched this forum but found nothing ( No results found for 'adjusting windows 2000 computer default screen size'.) and so far I have not come up with anything on Google.
Any help or ideas appreciated.

Well, that's to be expected if you're running with NoSaveSettings=1...

Solution: Windows Desktop Does Not Save User Customized Settings
Recently I got a similar mail from a visitor "Onie Ward":

I've tried to uninstall this program (I'm on Windows XP) and it seems to have worked, EXCEPT that every time I login, my icons all line up on the left hand side of the page. I move them back to where I want them, but every login...moved. It all started when I installed Vista Customization Pack. I've emailed them, but haven't heard back.
Can you help?? Thanks.
So if you are also facing such problem, then this tutorial will help you in fixing the issue:
1. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now check for a DWORD value "NoSaveSettings" in right-side pane under following keys:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Program Manager\Restrictions
The DWORD value could be present in any of above mentioned locations, most probably in the last one.
2. Once you find the DWORD value, delete it and restart your system. It'll solve your problem and Windows will remember your desktop settings.
