Looking for a quick solution on how to set the default view settings while "browsing" for files.  Via a web based form I click "browse" and navigate to my pictures folder.  I'm looking to set the default view to show thumbnails every time.  Right now it defaults to list.  Ideas?

Thx

In the broweser clicl Folder Options/View tab and put a check in "remember each folder's view settings"...

then go the folder with your images and choose the view you prefer. the next time it will be the same

If you don't store all your photos in the one folder you can open My computer > Right click > View > Thumbnails.
Then Tools > Folder Options > View tab > Apply to All Folders.

This will set every folder on your computer to display thumbnails as default however.

Thanks guys but I did set those options already and it had no effect on the OpenFileDialog settings.  Still defaults to list.
