Hi,

·         Do you face this issue on particular folder or all the folders.

Method 1:

I would suggest you to run the Microsoft Fixit from the link provided below and check if it helps:

Method 2:

Refer to the steps in the Kb article provided below .

Changes to the size, view, icon or position of a folder are lost

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
