Explorer File View


On our Citrix XEN App farm we have a shorcut to a share on a file server, however my users want it to default to LIST view and not ICONS as it current does... how can I change this?

thank you.

Are you talking about Windows Explorer's view?
Carpe--DiemAuthor Commented:
yes Windows Explorer views.
See below for how to change to the List View.

Windows Explorer - List View

I can change the view but what users want is everytime they login it shows Explorer in Icons view and they want it always to show in List view,

I want to know how to default Explorer to List View.

Choose to List view first then go to Folder Options of Windows Explorer, under View choose Apply to Folders.

Or, you may change the settings via Group Policy or registry.
