Opps, sorry.
The easiest way is with one of two very good utilities.
THIS IS WHERE TO GET "MORE PROPERTIES 2.0"
http://home.global.co.za/~olivierd/imaginary/
THIS IS WHERE TO GET TWEAKUI
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/software/PowerToy.htm
------
Either of these programs will do what you want and a lot more without having to make registry hacks.
--------
If you would like to see some other options, go to:
http://www.microsoft.com/kb/default.asp
At step 1 choose win 95
at step 5 type  explorer save settings
 You will find 14 articles about settings.
if you need further help, let me know.
