I continually have saved the file view settings that I want and XP randomly
changes them back to what it wants. I want detail view. XP wants either no
detail or icons, large and small and, occassionally it wants thumbnails. I
have applied my preferences to all folders and so what? There must be a way
of making detail view permanent.

Thank you.

Have you upgraded the system to Service Pack 2 yet, or run the registry
fix from Kelly's Korner that raises the number of folders the system
will remember the settings for?

Try holding down Ctrl while you click on the X to close the explorer view
- sometimes this helps. Also, if you want the same view for all folders,
you may want to uncheck the "Remember each folder's view settings" in
folder options.
