    In win 7, (example: notepad) "save as", "open" popup box , the icons view is always defaulted to "tiles". How can I make the view to be permanently "details" view?

    Thanks

    Once set to Details it should stay that way, are you saying the setting always goes back to Tiles?

    So, for example, you open Notepad and change the setting to Details, then close Notepad, the next time you open it the setting is back on Tiles?

    That is because the default folder is set to Tiles when in Windows Explorer.

    Open Windows Explorer, set to Details.

    Then, go to "Organize, then Folders and Search Options, then View Tab, and then click "Apply to folders"

    This should change ALL folders to be viewed as Details, in Windows Explorer and all programs.

    If you do it that way through the Libraries the "Apply to Folders" button will be greyed out, you have to go through the C: drive, Users, then select your name and then "My Documents".
