View Options

Although I have tried to have files open in a uniform way, I have not been
able to do this with the Windows Vista Control Panel. Under "view" I would
prefer a "List" rather than large or medium sized Icons. I have tried
checking various boxes under Folder Options but have not been able to
standardize a list view, Can you help me with this?

Many thanks:

Gene L.

That won't be found in the Control Panel but the menu bar>view of an
explorer window you have open. Each time you move into a sub folder o
out to a main folder you will need to go up to the view dropdown lis
and click the list option

Gene,

I believe "drumz" has the answer to your question in the thread "How do I
apply a custom view..." dated 3/4/09.

Why use Googlegroups? Search in your newsreader on "custom".

Umm... maybe because I don't keep old threads/posts, and don't want to
collect a bazillion past posts to find one that I should be able to
quickly find on Google Groups - which, unfortunately, has become
really troublesome recently.
