    Hi, Dennis ~

    Actually, in XP after you select the view you want, you need to do this:<UL><LI>In the menubar, go to 'Tools' > 'Folder Options...'<LI>Click the 'View' tab<LI>Under 'Folder views' click 'Apply to All Folders' button<LI>Finally, click 'Apply' > 'OK'[/list]

    After setting it to details, Go to the menu "Tools, Folder Options" and then the View tab. Select Save as current", Apply and then OK.
