    How Do I Permanently Arrange Files in List View?


    I need help figuring out how to make windows explorer organize all my files and folders in list form. Every time i open up windows explorer, my files are arranged as large icons, despite changing the view to list view. I want tot make sure the list view stays permanent. How do I do this?

    I would post the question right in the threads. Brink supports his tutorials. I don't think explorer has changed much but Brink would know the specifics of both those tutorials. Don't be afraid to ask questions in them. Everyone does.
