Force "List" view


Overclocked Like A Mother
8 Jul 2002
Hey all,

what would be the regedit to force all my folders to open in "List" view. Everytime I open some folders (even on Mapped drives), the view reverts back to "Thumbnails"


Ha I have the same problem and I was seriously googling it before I came here. Except mine doesn't revert all the time, just when the computer restarts. Or is your computer doing that to you too?

Try this Nevermind that one is pretty stupid and poorly written. Maybe try some of these instead and I'll them it too. We'll compare notes afterward.

Edit #2: Crap, none of these seem to be that great. I will investigate further.

Okay will try it,

Thanks Petros.

I already had that mod, Petros.

I increased it to 8000 decimal for both regedits.

This one looks good (random corruption/misreading of the key). It's the flamethrower approach, which is ALWAYS my favorite way to handle computer problems.

Whew! That fixed it for me; hope your luck is similar. List view 4 lyfe homiez.

Fire up explorer.

Tools > Folder options > View

click reset all folders.

Set the folder view to list in explorer,

set other options you want in folder options but uncheck remember each folders view settings.

When happy click apply to folders.

Be happy :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
