Explorers section width.

In Explorer, when in details-mode, there are sections: name,type,date,size. How can I change the width of each section so that explorer doesn't forget the widths, so they would be same when started again?
 Same question goes on window-shapes.

Get "Power Toys". You can download it for free at microsoft's site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/common/a293.htm. "Power Toys" is a collection of useful items but what you need is something called "TweakUI". You can download the full set of PowerToys or, if you scroll down, you'll see that you can download TweakUI only, if you so desire. Follow the directions for installation provided on the site. Once done, you'll have a "TweakUI" icon in your control panel. Click this to start, click the "Explorer" Tab where you'll see a check box for "Save Window Settings". After you've sized your windows and placed them where you want them, go to TweakUI and check this box. Restart your computer and *uncheck* it when you return. Your settings will be remembered. Note that this utility isn't perfect but it's about the best we can do for now. Hope this is what the Dr. ordered!

I have TweakUI and yes I think its SaveWindowSettings makes windows to remember their sizes, but widths of sections of Explorer does not stay, they lose width even when changing drives.

I'm sorry, timoth.  I must have misunderstood your question.  Let me see if I've got this straight:  You like to have Explorer in "Details" mode (from the "View" menu) and you want the details to be lined up according to the way your window is sized so that you can see all the file specs?  Let me know so I can get back to finding the solution (if one exists).
