MS Explorer defaults

What has microsoft done to my Windows Explorer?  In all previous versions, I would simply go to View and select Details and that's how I liked my explorer.  In 2000, it seems I need to do that for each and every directory I enter.  Am I missing some new setting?  IS there a way to make it always default to "Details" view?

Try setting a folder with the Details setting, then selecting "Make all folders like this folder". This is on one of the tabs in the View|Folder Options dialog, although I can't remember which one on Win2K (it's on the View tab on Win98). Can't guarantee this'll work, but it's worth a try!

Tools|Folder Options|View|Like Current Folder.

I hate it when they do stuff like this.  Remeber when the moved options in IE 5?  AIGH!

Anyway, change your comment to answer and I'll give you the points.
