Individual folders view settings in a Citrix environment

I need to know if there is a way in citrix to change one user's folder and explorer settings to list view rather than tiled view. I'm thinking Group policy should be able to do it but I don't know how.

When the user tries to set it themselves it changes for that session but then when they log off and log back on it resets. I was thinking the only way to get it to stay is group policy but I also don't know what could be causing it to reset. I was thinking it's just a citrix default.

The reason it disappears is that I believe it gets saved in the local settings of the profile. The local settings do not get uploaded back to the file server where the user's profiles are stored. So on the next session they do not reflect.

Did you try the GPO or the registry setting provided?

I don't want to put everyone in citrix on the classic shell so I did not try the GPO or registry setting provided.

Is there a way to make the local settings upload back to the file server?

Definately a solution but I chose not to make the changes. I wanted a solution that was just a simple setting change that I can make for all users that will only effect the folder view and nothing else.

Thank you though Mutawadi
