I am having trouble defining the default view for windows explorer. We would like to have each of our computers default view be "detail" instead of small, large, or list view.  I know how to do this on an individual computer, but we would like to deploy this across our domain.  We run a Windows 2000 Server environment with Windows XP workstations.

Does anyone know if this can be done via a Group Policy? I have reviewed the GPOediter and can't seem to find it. If its not possible through a Group Policy does anyone have any other recommendations on how to accomplish this?

Thanks....

You need to find out the registry settings enabled/disabled by Folder Options control panel utility for details view and then deploy the settings using a login script via Group Policy.

To find the registry key you can use WinInstLE.
