For years I've wondered how to permanently keep the "view" I prefer to use
in a fileopen dialog. For example, when I use Notepad, I always get the
same view and have to a) expand the window, b) click on Details to get the
listing I want, and c) sort by reverse date to get the order I want.

Is there any way to make these settings "stick" across uses of this and
other programs?

Thanks!

Hi Michel,

It is not possible to save the views for the common dialogs.

You can accomplish what you want with a third party shareware program.
Go to the following website and download the fully functional demo of Dialog
