    I'm running XP Pro with SP 2.

    Whenever I work with my photos in any editing software and save the results, the "Save As" dialog box always opens with the "Thumbnail" view.

    I prefer to use the "List" view but I have to change to that view every time.

    I have gone to Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View and checked the "Do not cache thumbnails option.", but it only affects folders in Explorer.

    Is there a way to make "List" the default in the "Save As" dialog?

    Thank you.

    Go to the "View" menu to make your selection, "List"

    As I said in my post:
    " I prefer to use the "List" view but I have to change to that view every time."


    I'm asking if there's a way to change the default from "Thumbnails" to "List".

    Hmmm

    I presume from your response that it returned to Thumbnails.

    Go into Tools/Folder Options/View and tick "Remember each folder's view settings"

    I have already done that but it only affects the folders within Explorer. It has no affect on the "Save As" dialog in any of my photo editing programs.
