  2. What you asked for is called "tiles" under the 'View' menu.
    For the second question: In the Control Panel - Folder Options - View Tab, do your have a check mark in the box "Remember each folder's view settings"?

    well you fixed the last problem, but as to the first one, its not jus
    the size of the icons that annoys me, its the fact that it doens't hav
    the whole "Hard disk Drives" & "Devices With Remobable Storage"

  4. Then your initial question was not complete.
    How were we supposed to know how many drives you have attached when you took that snap shot?
    Do more drives show up in "Disk Management"?

  9. If you don't quote the original problem you are referring too, and don't
    take the time and energy to describe your own problem, you are not likely to
    obtain assistance anywhere.

    Amen to that Richard. There seems to be a lot of "me too" posts lately.
    If they don't quote the original post I just forget them.

    Hi, Questor.

    The problem is that these posters are not contacting the Microsoft public
    newsgroups directly. They have subscribed to some "forum" on the Internet
    that appears to be the home base of "experts". The user with a problem
    posts the question to that "forum" - which does nothing but relay the post
    to these newsgroups, hoping that someone here will volunteer an answer.
    Then the "forum" can "slurp" or "leech" the free message and post it on
    their "forum". They collect advertising revenue from clicks on their
    "forum" and thereby profit from the free, voluntary efforts of those who
    volunteer to help in newsgroups. This particular message from Arakai was
    relayed via the "vBulletin USENET gateway" from the forum at
    "NNTP-Posting-Host:", which proudly displays,
    "Ads by Google".

    Trouble is, as you see, that the "forum" doesn't bother to send any context
    along with the bare-naked question. And, often, the question is like
    Arakai's; that is, it's a followup to a previous question on the "forum";
    Arakai can see the previous question, so he thinks that we can see it, too.
    So neither the "forum" nor the individual poster bother to include the prior
    message(s). We are left wondering what "the same problem as this guy" might
    have been. Even if we spend some time composing a helpful answer, we have
    no way of knowing if Arakai will ever see our work.

    It's most frustrating!

    Any time we see a post from "<>", especially if the
    Subject starts with "Re:", and most especially if the message starts with,
    "I have the exact same problem...", then we know that we probably are
    wasting our time to try to provide an answer. That's mostly because we can
    only guess at what the actual question or problem might be, and because we
    have no confidence that the questioner will ever have a chance to read our
    response. The time that we spend answering these questions that go into a
    black hole is time that we could spend helping users who will actually see
    our responses.

    And there's really no dependable way to get word back to the "forum member"
    about what's happening.

    THAT's why it appears that so many questions in these Microsoft public
    newsgroups are ignored.

    Arakai, if you DO happen to see this message, then "cut out the middleman"
    and post directly to this newsgroup at:

    Be sure to tell us what your actual problem or question is and you are
    almost sure to get a helpful response.

    Hi, Vanilla.

    You're welcome, of course.

    We know what the problem is. Many of us know. But we don't know how to fix
    it. :>(

    We don't know how to spread the word except by one message at a time. And
    those making money off those ads are not likely to help us. Or to help
    their "members".
