Windows stores the view settings and customizations of each folder in the registry. The cache inside the registry is normally limited to 400 folders (200 for local folders and 200 for network folders) but it can be increased with some changes in the registry.

If you use the default value - 400, the new entry overwrites the first entry. So, keep the number as high as possible as not to affect the performance of the system.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below at ordinal position 1. Now, create a DWORD value name, “BagMRU Size” in the right panel, if this value does not exist. Right-click this value name and modify the value data with the desired number in Decimal.

Now, navigate to the registry path listed below at ordinal position 2. Create a DWORD value name, “BagMRU Size” in the right panel, if this value does not exist. Right-click this value name and modify the value data with the with the desired number in Decimal.
