How to set folder view to 'details' globally for all folders?

I am really annoyed with having to change the views from the default of 'tiles' to the view of 'details.'
I would like to have the default viewing option in windows explorer to be set on 'details' globally for all folders.  How would I go about doing this?

An example of what I would not like is if I opened up windows explorer, the first folder that I click on will have the view set as 'tiles'.  If I change the view to 'details' it will only save that specific folder and not the global view of folders.  So, if I open a different folder, the view will be in 'tiles'.

After you have set the view the way you want, click Tools, Folder Options... click the View tab, then click "Apply to All Folders"
