    Hi,

    This is driving me nuts! :D. Using Windows XP, I want to disable/kill the Auto Arrange function in My Pictures (and all sub-folders). Unticking it in context menu (right click) makes no difference nor (anymore) does editing the Registry Entry (ie, HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Windows NT/Current Settings/Program Manager/Settings/Auto-Arrange/Edit D Word Value, etc.

    Any idea what I should do next?

    Thanks,

    DANNY O'DARE

    upgrade from a 10 year old OS?

    But other than that if you go into view -> options -> view and do reset folders that should reset it all, then set it how you like then do apply to all folders and it should be set... maybe... it's been years since i touched XP
