Win Zip 15.0 with Win XP

I need some assistance configuring Win Zip when it opens and archive. Currently is opens showing the archived files as Thumbnails. I need the display to show the files in the Detail view. I've attached a couple of images showing the undesired and the desired view. Once the Win Zip is open, I can change view by the change does not stick and next time the dialogue box appears it is in the thumbnail view.

Would really appreciate some help with this.

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I guess until you register the winzip you'll get its default view the undesired one...

In WinZip 15 -> Settings -> Options -> View tab, uncheck Smart View Mode.

My WinZip always comes up in Details. I think you do need to be registered as noted above.

Have you thought of replacing WinZip with 7-Zip, which is a FREE, open source program and more powerful than WinZip?

Since WinZip is already installed, there is no need to replace it with a different product so far as I can see.

Unchecking "Smart View" solved the problem. I greatly appreciate the quick and effective solution provided. Thanks.

By the way, this is the latest version of Win Zip. This is a paid for and properly registered copy of Win Zip, but I grayed out the registration number and my name before posting here. Win Zip has several advantages over open-source compression programs; e.g., it consistently compresses *.jpg images by 20%+, better encryption management, etc., etc.

afthab: You are correct I did not check the link you provided and i was scanning all the replies to my question. I the answer from thinkpads user: and immediately tried. You also provided the answer to my question and were the first to do so, however, I did not get to it until later. I apologize. I'm sure you're frustrated. I'm not familiar with Experts Exchange enough to know if I can retro-actively award point to you. Clearly I awarded the points based on the help I made use of to resolve the question.

If there is a way to provide point to you as well I'll gladly do so. Your answer is complete and would have been the solution if I had not scanned all message first
