Windows XP always remembers the settings saved for a folder. If you have changed the folder view of a particular folder, it will be remembered next time you open it.
If you need to change the default folder view, please follow the steps below.
- Open a folder
- Right click on a empty space and select View
- Now select the default view you need to set
- Now this setting is saved for the particular folder. To apply this setting for all folders, click on Tools and select Folder Options from the top menu bar
- Click on view tab
- Click on Apply to All Folders. Done
