I have been fighting a never ending battle in both 7 and 8 to make all my folders and libraries to view in details view and not any other view. I have set all folders on all my drives set to General Type. I had it do this for all sub folders. At least 2x's a day I will open a folder that I have used before and it opens up in another view. This is getting annoying. I only want to view my folders in Details view nothing else. Is there something I can do to make it stick? I would like a registry hack or something to tell Windows to not change my view settings.
