Folder Options

Post by STG »


I am new here after just reading about ReactOS on Slashdot. It's just what I have been wanting, a different version of Windows to run in my VM's

OK, so I have installed ReactOS, setup networking and grahpics, audio etc.

I have just gone to configure the Folder Options in Explorer by going to "Folder Options" in control panel. However I am not able to select any of the options in the View Tab. Is this by design or do I need special permissions first~?

Also, I would like all the files in the right pane to be in the view of Details, however after selecting "details" view and go else where it is back to Large Icon view.

There is a good chance that your problem is at least partially solved.
