I've had Vista Ultimate x64
[*] Folders that can't remember their display settings. XP suffers from this as well but Vista seems to be far worse. I am never sure when either Control Panel or Windows Explorer will resize themselves when launched. Again, this is basic stuff. As a user if I double-click a desktop shortcut I expect to see the same behaviour each time. Vista also seems to forget that I have set some folders up to display full file details. I navigate to the folder and I have a few dozen large icons displayed instead. It isn't as though anybody else used the PC.[/list]
From the above you would imagine that I wouldn't install Vista again. Oddly enough I would, but that's only because I'm a technophile and I know that, like it or not, Vista won't go away but, in time, XP will.

Hey Bob, I have the same problem, with folders being deranged. Did you find a solution to your issue? I looked at defaulting the folder style to classic, and still not really as workable as XP was...

Nope, no solution. It's such a basic flaw that it's incomprehensible to me why it has never been fixed. :evil:

That would be rather pointless. Vista SP2 is just a collection of bugfixes rolled out earlier to make it easier for new installs. It does not add new functionality afaik ;)
