On one PC, double-click computer, do Organize -> Layout, and click Menu.  Change the folder view to what you want then do Tools -> Options and, on the View tab, check the button to Apply to all Folders.
Afterwards, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell in regedit and export it to a REG file.
Copy the REG file to a folder available to all users and push it as a LOGIN script.
