Hi,

Since reinstalling Windows, it's been a pain in the butt to reset each folder display. I like the Details/by Type/Show in Groups layout.

Is there any way to make this default for all folders?

Thx. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

yeah

just set your settings the way you like it for a folder

then go to tools/folder options

and on the view tab click on "apply to all folders"

This is one of the first things I always do when I reinstall. I'd say my top list of settings that I change right away are:

-change the default folder display
-disable that annoying "start navigation" click noise
-"Use large icons"
-disable "highlight newly installed programs"
-remove outlook express from my start menu<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

After years of aviation picture trawling, I'd love some setting that would automatically make the first picture in a given folder the one the folder icon displays when all the folders are viewed from the outside in thumbnail mode. That'd be a time saver. Instead of customising each folder and selecting a picture manually http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
