    I don't really use explore like I should.. It does somethings that PowerDesk doesn't do(<<is a great program) but the thing I can't STAND about it, having to switch from big icon to detail everytime I use it.
    Is there a way to permanently have explore open in a "detail" mode?
    Inquiring minds..

    switch to details mode then folder options -> view -> apply to all folders

    if that doen't work

    Sometimes windows XP forgets it's folder view settings.

    Here is the solution.

    Backup these RegKeys.

    1:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Sh
    ellNoRoam\BagMRU]

    2:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Sh
    ellNoRoam\Bags]

    After that you must delete them.

    Restart windows to take effect.

    Now you can change each folder and the setting will stay.
