#StackBounty: #windows-10 #windows-registry One culprit folder is changing the "ThisPc" view settings

Bounty: 50

Windows 10 pro. All folders are saving its views that I set for them. For example, “ThisPc” is set to “Tiles” and “Group by Type.” Most other folders are in the “general” type and are set to “list,” sort by name and no grouping.

I have a FEW that have minor changes.
For example, my downloads folder is set to list and “sort by date modified” (so I see newly downloaded files first.) My “Screenshots” folder is also set to “sort by date modified” but is set to “large icon view” (so I see the image of the last taken screenshot first)

There is ONE folder however, called “PROGS,” which I want to be like most of the other folder… Type:”general” View:”list” Sort:”by name” Group:”none”

Sounds simple enough. Problem is, when I installed Windows, that “PROGS” folder opened like the “ThisPc”… View:”Tiles” Group:”by type”

Whatever I change the PROGS folder to – the “ThisPC” changes to that as well. And whatever I change the “ThisPC” to – the PROGS folder changes to that as well.

The PROGS folder is set to “general.”

I have already deleted the BAGS in the registry, and reset registry values, which takes it all back to when I installed Windows but when I change the PROGS folder’s view, the same issue happens.

This is the registry script I run to reset.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesLocal SettingsSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShellBags]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesLocal SettingsSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShellBags]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesLocal SettingsSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShellBagsAllFolders]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesLocal SettingsSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShellBagsAllFoldersShell]
"FolderType"="NotSpecified"

Any ideas?
