    Any idea why my folder views would keep changing? Talking all about one folder here, one time I'll open it and it'll be thumbnail, then I'll change it to list, and then a few hours later, I'll open it and It'll be in details view. Not really a problem, this is just kinda getting on my nerves.

    Also, does anyone know if there is a tweak that will have all folders (except "my Computer") default to list view?

    yup...

    First open a folder, other than My Comp, click the 'view' tab and set it to the view you want them all to take as default, I.E. 'list. Then go Tools>folder options and click the view tab, then click 'Apply to all folders' at the top, click yes to confirm. Then go back to 'My Comp' folder and under view tab set it to what you want it to look like, I.E 'icons'.

    Voila! All done.

    GraLk :D

    Yeah, I've noticed that with XP as well. Not really sure why it does this.
