MS - Folder Options
What a pain Vista is!

How do I change my folder options. I want to see all folders in detail
format when I open them. I have to change each and everyone every time I
open a folder.

If you are new to Vista, I urge you to use the Help and Support to see the
differences between Vista and previous versions of Windows. The help in
Vista is much more complete and more intuitive with a plain language search.

Go to Start and click on Help and Support. Type "Change folder views"
"folder options" or whatever else you may need information for in the search
box and press Enter. Click the first link in the results and you will have
access to a very complete section on how to do this.

Re: MS - Folder Options

I followed the directions, and they worked. At least for all my disk
folders I now see the detailed view without having to futz in each
folder.

But when I click on a DVD drive, the same detailed settings I just set
are not applied. I see the non-detailed view. WHY?

Hi BobF,

External devices will not retain their folder view settings when turned
off or disconnected from the computer.

Sorry,
Shawn
