View Full Version : default to DETAILS view instead of LIST in FILE > OPEN applet

Whenever I open or save a file i always see the default "view" is set
to "List". I can change it by selecting the "view menu" and I can
change it to: Thumbnails, Tiles, Icon, List, Details etc.

I prefer to set a system wide preference to ALWAYS have the default
view be "Details".

How can I do this?

The last view options used should remain as the default view.
For example in MS Word: Create a sample document > Save the document > In
the Save As dialogue box, change the view to details > Click the Save button.
The next time you save, the view should remain in Details view. That’s true
with opening files. Maybe there is another user on your machine that prefers
the list view.

Close all Explorer windows.
Open My Computer and set the View to Details.
Click Tools-Folder Options-View and click "Apply to all folders"
Click OK > OK

Good Luck, Ayush.
