is there a way to keep the folder view always on details when accessing a folder.
Folders may open as thumbnails or list etc.... and I prefer using details on all of my folders

Open up a folder, set it up the way you want it defaulted to..
Then go to the "Tools" menu --> "Folder Options..." --> switch to the "View" tab --> click the "Apply to All Folders" button.
