    Windows Explorer default open?

    Is there some way to make Windows Explorer open the same way every time: details, sorted by time?

    Re: Windows Explorer default open?

    Under NT, I don't know of any way to do so. In Windows 2000, folder view settings can be retained, but I haven't been able to accomplish this on my NT4 box.

    First you can use closen user-profiles. After every new
    login the settings are equal.

    Explorer Expands System Drive by Default

    SYMPTOMS
    ========

    When Windows NT Explorer is started, it automatically expands the drive C (or System drive).

    1. Click start, and then click run.
    2. Type the following line and then press ENTER:
    %systemroot%explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

    STATUS
    ======

    This behavior is by design.

    MORE INFORMATION
    ================

    You can use the following steps to modify the Windows NT Explorer shortcut
    on the Start Menu to open with no drives expanded:

    1. Right-click the taskbar, and then select Properties.

    2. Click the Start Menu Programs tab, and then click Advanced.

    3. In the right pane, double-click Programs.

    4. Right-click Windows NT Explorer, click Properties, and then click the Shortcut tab.

    5. For target, type the following command line:

    %systemroot%explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} *
