View Full Version : default view settings in xp

14-07-2002, 11:52 AM
How do I change the default view settings for folders in windows xp (home). I would much prefer the good old 'icon' then the larger 'tile' and am sick changing the same folders back to the icon setting. Thanks.

select the view you want using the right hand button in the toolbar.
click on tools-folder options-view-apply to all folders

When you have My computer open, then in the toolbar next to the folders icon is the views icon. Click this then select the view you want (I think the view you are wanting is list but I'm not sure). When you have done that go to tools, folder options, view then click apply to all folders.

Hope this helps
