I'd reaaly like to know if anyone knows how to globally set the view type in the Windows Explorer. I hate the stupid tile view, all I want is the standard large icons. Every bloody time I go into a new folder these hulking great bastards of thing are there. My system's pretty fast, but in folders with 1000s of files it takes forever. Also the Windows Explorer won't save my setting to keep the status bar, even though I've set it to remember changes and Microsoft have buggered the status bar anyway. it doesn't show the size of .zip files! The other point of interest I have is the Task Manager. Why the bloody hell does it sort PID's in reverse numerical order? It's bloody terrible and when I re-order the PID's it doesn't remember the setting for next time. Why does Microsoft persist in changing things that don't need changing?
