View Full Version : Windows Explorer - View

In XP, Win Explorer (File manager) offers views: Thumbnails, tiles, icons, list, details. I like to use details, but everytime I open anew, view flicks back to tiles. I wonder if anyone knows of a way of making 'details' the default view?

In 98 view stays where you put it, but XP seems to have a mind of its own.

In Windows Explorer set your view as you want it (ie Details) then go to Tools/Folder Options/View tab and click on Apply to All Folders.

Many thanks, I knew there had to be a way! Not bad either, just 30 minutes to get the answer. :-)
