    Open Explorer, Set the view you require, then Tools, Folder Options, View Tab, Apply To All Folders

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    To carry the question one step further. How do I get Windows Explorer to open with the My Computer tab. My version opens with the My Documents folder open.

    If I understand what you want, the Win-E keyboard combo should be what you're looking for.

    To make Explorer open the root folder on the C: drive by default (this assumes you have Windows installed in the default C:\Windows folder):
    1. Right-click the icon you usually use to access Windows Explorer and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
    2. Change the value in the Target box to:
    C:\Windows\Explorer /e, C:\
    Don't worry about case -- the Target value is case insensitive. I'm using mixed case here merely for clarity.
    3. Click OK.
    You can replace 'C:\' with any other pathname you choose. For instance, to open by default at the Program Files folder use:
    C:\Windows\Explorer /e, c:\Program Files
    The /e switch makes Explorer display both a folder list and file window. Or, in Microsoft parlance, it opens in Explorer View showing scope and results. If you leave the /e switch off, Explorer will open a plain file window without the folder list (Microsoft calls this Open View).
