Saving (or Not Saving) Your Windows Settings on Exit
It is relatively easy to have your computer Save Setting On Exit.
All you need to do is change your “NoSaveSettings” Key in your registry to read like this:
Click Start, Run and type in Regedit and click OK.
The Path to this Key is:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
If you like, you can copy everything below between the dash lines (—) but not the lines themselves, and paste it into notepad and then save it as “Save.reg”.
When you’re ready, just double click on it and it will put that key and value in the registry for you.
Note: You will need to reboot in order for the change to take effect!
Now let’s presume that you do not want to save your setting on Exit
1.Start Regedit 2.Go to HKey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer 3.Right click on the right panel and add a New\DWORD 4.Name it NoSaveSettings 5.Give it a value of 1
6.Logoff or Reboot the computer
