I like for my Explorer  View to be  Details.  That is how I leave Explorer.  Next time in, my View is  Large Icons.  I just don't like Large Icons.   Now, HOW do I get Explorer to behave like I want it to?????

cbyrd,
You must enter you registry and make your ("NoSaveSettings"=hex:00,00,00,00) look like this. the values should all be 00's. If you don't have this "NoSaveSettings" key, create it and enter the values as shown above. Here is the path:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=hex:00,00,00,00

If this does not work please let me know.

Oh Yea,
Tweakui from powertoys does this much better that hacking your registry. Also another program called more20 or properties plus
will do this with the click of a mouse, likr tweakui.
You can get Tweakui or all power toys at:
