Settings for 'Details' Folder View option

Discussion in 'Windows XP Help' started by Herbert Eppel, Feb 8, 2008.

  1. How can I make a particular setting for the 'Details' Folder View option
    stick?

    I would like to see Name, Size and Date Modified, with the Name column
    wider than the default width.

    Windows Explorer seems to set this on a folder by folder basis, i.e.
    every time I open another folder it seems to come up with a default
    'Details' setting (i.e. narrow Name column, Size, Type, Date Modified).

    If you are creating new folders, the settings applied by default cant be
    changed. However in normal use, i.e. if you open a folder, the remembered
    settings of that folder will be loaded as long as you have the option set. To
    enable folders remembering their view settings, do the following: In control
    panel goto Folder Options ->View->select "Remember each folder's view
    settings".

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm surprised the default setting can't be changed =-O

    I wonder why there is no such option?

    After all, it is available in other file managers such as PowerDesk.
