Set up Windows Explorer the way you want and the in the Tools, Folders Option, then the View tab, select "Apply to All folders" and OK yourself out. Now close Windows Explorer and open it back up and your settings should be as saved.

You will only see the tools menu if you have enabled the tool bar which is turned off by default in windows vista.
From Windows Explorer, you will find it under Organize...Folder and search Options...then view tab.
