Windows XP - for some reason I can no longer get the status bar to “stick” at the bottom of my Windows Explorer screen (the little info strip that shows file size, free space on the drive, etc.) I can click View-Status Bar and it shows, but when I exit and then open Windows Explorer again it’s gone.
That seems to be something that gets broken on a regular basis. It was like that on my initial install. After some patches, it stuck. But I recently installed a patch and it has become unstuck again. Sorry, no solution, but just confirmation that you are not the only one with the problem.
Get a windows explorer screen set all like you wanted, then go to Tools->Folder Options->View and click Apply To All Folders. Below that, make sure that Remember Individual Folder’s View Settings is checked.

I’d like to be able to view the contents of a folder as a web page (previewing an image on the left.) Is there a way to do this short of reverting back to the classic Windows style? I’m not even sure if that option has that feature like Win98SE did, though.
Going back to classic will remove the “view as thumbnails” type option. Classic had none of that nonsense. What you can do (in XP) is open an explorer window and select View->Thumbnails. This will make each file a thumbnail. I haven’t found a way to have all the files there like normal with the currently selected one “thumbnailed” on the left which kinda sounds like what you want.
