Is there some way to preserve the settings for the Recycle Bin/Trash folder? I will set my preferences, and the next time I look, they’ve been reset to System default. I prefer the following settings:
Group by –Item type
Sort by—Name
View—Large Icons
I don’t know if CCleaner is deleting my settings or if Windows is doing it. If I knew where the settings are saved in the Registry, I could build a “.reg” file to reset them to my choice. This has been bugging me for many years.

I think the Recycle Bin folder in Explorer is handled internally like any other folder.

Windows has a limited number of folders it can 'remember' settings for. Once you customize one too many folders, it starts 'forgetting' the settings for the older ones and you end up with system defaults for those that get dropped off the list.

On the other hand, read THIS.

I was aware of those tricks for normal folders. I have no problems with the settings for any folder except Recycle Bin. Evidently, there are "Special" rules that apply to the Trash.

Well, I don't know then, sorry.

If it helps, you can add a tab to the Shelf that shows the contents of the Windows Recycle bin.
