When using Windows Explorer, how do you set the default that Windows Explorer will show the files in "Details" view rather than an "Icon" view ?

What version of Windows, Nobby?

In Windows XP you need to go Tools > Folder Options, click on View, and click the "Apply to all folders" button - this should save the settings to display in details view everytime you open Explorer.

I'm just checking for Win 98 and ME...

Okay, in 98SE you go View > Folder Options > View, and "Like Current Folder"

and in ME Tools > Folder Options > View, and "Like Current Folder".

This should save the view for next time you start Explorer.

>>> Query was for Windows 2000

I'd expect the process for W2K will be similar to Windows ME
