Is there anyway to set the windows explorer to always us the Folder View by
default.
I've tried setting the folder view this way: Tools | Folder Options |View |
Like Current Folder, but this does not seem to work. I like the way the
Windows Explorer opens on W2K better because of this.

If anybody knows how to do this configuration, please let me know.

Thanks

In Tools / Folder Options / File Types, find "Folder" (not "File Folder") -
push the Advanced button, select Action "explore", and press the "Set Default"
button.

If I understand you correctly (and I may not), this may be what you want In Windows Explorer Tools Folder Options General Use Windows Classic folders This opens Explorer with the folder structure in the left hand panel. I am used to doing this, because when I set it to "Show common tasks in folders" , my wife doesn't like it so I have to change it back. :-) Anonymous December 13, 2004 8:07:57 AM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?) Thanks for all 3-responses. It seems that all three work. I prefer seeing my directory (folder) structure too.
