One of my users has changed their Windows Explorer Folder Options to 'single-click to open an item'. The setting is not saving when the user logs off.




1. Check your configuration to see which Windows Explorer Portability rule you are using (in most cases it is the 'Windows Explorer - 5.6' rule).

2. Add this rule to the Windows Explorer ruleset you are using:

Merge Value HKCU 'Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellState'


Note: Make sure to choose 'Merge Value' and not 'Merge Tree'.

3. Save the ruleset and update your configuration. Refresh the desktop pool/catalog. The setting should save after that.
