Computer issue "View As List"?

Sure this is an easy answer but I want to have all my files on my computer in the "VIEW AS LIST" formate. . .

I have no idea how to get them to all be that save from going into each of them indavidually and setting them to "LIST" . . .

Any help in this matter would be great.

Thanks.

easy, set one of the window to the way you want it. Then click Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> Apply to All Folders. I think the menu might be different for different OS.

You didn't say what OS, but I'll take a stab at it.

Go into Windows Explorer and set the currently displayed folder as List. Then from the menu bar, Tools->Folder Options->View->Remember each folder's view settings (uncheck this). Then click the long button on top that says "Like Current Folder".

Another tip for getting Windows Explorer. If you have one of those spiffy keyboards with a Windows key on it (between Ctrl and Alt) you can use this keyboard shortcut to get Windows Explorer up. Hold down the Windows key and then hit "E". *poof*
