|Increase Cache for Customized Folders (Windows XP)|
Category: Home > Security > Start Menu and Taskbar > Documents and Folders
Windows XP normally remembers the customized settings of a maximum of 400 folders. This tweak allows you to increase the number of folders that can be individually customized.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value called "BagMRU Size" and set it to the number of folders that Windows should save settings for (e.g. 1000).
Repeat the step for the same value at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam].
Restart Windows for the change to take effect.
|(Default)||REG_SZ||(value not set)|
|BagMRU Size||REG_DWORD||0x000003E8 (1000)|
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell]|
Name: BagMRU Size
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: Default = 400 folders
