How to Increase Folder View Settings Cache Memory Size in Windows

You can change the folder view settings in Windows to what you want. Folder view settings include the File Explorer window size, template (not for folders on the Desktop), column width, Group by, Sort by, and layout view of items in your folders.

By default, Windows will only remember the first 5000 folders you apply folder view settings to. After you reach the default 5000 folders limit (BagMRU Size), Windows will no longer remember anymore folder view settings you apply.

Windows stores the folder view settings of the current user in the registry key below for each folder until the limit has been reached.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU

If you find Windows not remembering your folder view settings, you can increase the cache memory size (BagMRU Size) up to a maximum of 20,000 folders to be remembered instead of the default 5,000 folders.

This tutorial will show you how to change or increase the folder view settings cache memory size for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 to have Windows remember your folder view settings.
