    File format

    I want all my folders to come up the same way, in detail mode with all the filenames and extensions. I've used the View, Folder Options command, but I still have to change the sub-folders to the detail mode. Is there a way to make all my folders open in detail mode automatically? Please give me detailed instructions if there is a way. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    After making your changes did you click the "Like current folders" button in the 'Options, and on the View tab' area ?

    Yes, I did. While that might change the folders directly below, it does not change those folders that are lower down the chain.

    It might change AOL 7 folder, but not the Download folder in AOL 7 .

    I have been using this setting since Windows 95 and it does work with ALL folders and sub folders that I open.
    It works in Windows 95, 98, Me, 2K, NT, and XP.

    Maybe you're doing a step (s) I'm not doing. Could you send me precise, step by step instructions, beginning from being at the desktop. I think you want me to click on My Computer as the first step. Start me from the Desktop.

    Ok, number 1 I do NOT use "My Computer ", I use Windows Explorer, ie., "Windows Key + e".
    I then make any settings from the "Windows Explorer" tool bar and then'Tools, Options" and make ALL of the different settings that I want from within the Options area. I then go to the "View" tab and do the "Like Current Folder" bit.

    Your problem may be that you are using "My Computer", I have never like it, and have ALWAYS used Windows Explorer.
