How to set default contact views on Outlook 2013

Does anyone know of a way to change the default view for Contacts in Public Folders?

We have a Company contact list added to favorites in Outlook 2013  so it shows up under other contacts. Every time we navigate to it, the view reverts to People View and we would like it to stay in a different view such as Business Cards.

The personal contacts keep the last used view but the public contacts will not. I have looked under properties of the contacts and under all the view settings but did not find a way to set a default.

Thanks,
Grant

The entries are in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Contactcard

Set a PC the way you want it, export that key, then merge it as part of a login script.
Here is an article with some of the options: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff631135.aspx#BKMK_ContactCards

I guess the question is still "how do I set the PC the way you want it" since there seems to be no way to permanently set the view in public folders.  That is, unless you're saying by exporting and importing that view setting from People view it will overwrite the default for viewing public contacts?
