how to save directory window?

Hi all,stupid question here.I'm using winuae with workbench installed.using workbench,i have a few directories on my
virtual harddisk with a lot of directories in it.I always have to make directory bigger,so i can see all the drawers in it
,but every time i close any of those directories and i reopen it,it's small again and i have to make it bigger manually
again.my question is,can i somehow save the directory appearance so i don't have to make it bigger again?i've tried
everything like,save window contents,snapshot etc.using rightclick in the middle of the window,but none works.i hope i made
it clear enough,i know it's confusing but i hope you guys understand what i mean.thanks in advance for suggerstions.best regards

Hold down the right mouse button, choose Window -> Snapshot -> All and that's it

Send a message via MSN to smoorke
default drawer position/size are stored in envarc:sys/def_drawer.info
this also stores show/all state

best way to snapshot this would be make a new directory with icon in ram
open said drawer in workbench (lets call it ram:snapshot for the sake of the example)
resize and reposition the drawer and do Window->Snapshot->Window

open a shell (Workbench->Execute: Newcli)
type in: copy ram:snapshot.info envarc:sys/def_drawer.info
also for immediate effect without the need of a reboot: copy ram:snapshot.info to env:sys/def_drawer.info
