Dear All,
 Is there a way to set Windows explorer once and forever so I can always open any folder with Classical Windows Folder\Details?

Thank you

Use Tools, Options to make your settings, then click apply.  Then go to the View tab and click the button that says "Like Current Folder".

Dear asyscokid ,
 I do not have any View tab that says "Like Current Folder"
 Any additional ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

In Explorer under Tools, Folder Options, are you saying you do not have a tab labeled "View", or are you saying you have a View tab, but it does not have a button that says "Like Current Folder"?  It actually may be labeled "Apply to All Folders".
