I didn’t think this was of general enough interest to belong in GQ. But since I have more respect for the SDMB community than the first-tier support staff at my company, I’m putting this question to my fellow Dopers.
I’m running WinXP, and it seems whenever I open a window, it defaults to the icon view. I nearly always prefer the detail view. Is there anything I can do, perhaps in the control panel, to force all windows on my system to default to the detail view?
