Question on "My Docs" default window

When I open "My Documents" folder it is sorted so that my individual files
are listed in the window.

In order for me to see my folders I have to click on the foders icon at the
top. The folders then appear on the left. Is it possible for the "My DOcs"
folder to automatically open in the dual window mode with fodlers always
listed on the left?

Thanks
