    I use XP Pro....
    I keep my audio files in folders. And I don't know why every now and then when I open these folders all the files show in "Tile mode". I hate that and always convert them all to "List mode". But in a few days they go back to all showing in "Tile mode" again.

    Is there a way to make all the contents of folders Always show in "List mode"?

    The option "Remember each folder Setting" within My Computer, Tools, Folder Options, and View tab should do the trick.

    Thanks, Dan
    I had done that already. But what I hadn't done(and just now found does the trick) is to go into one of the folders, reset the files to "List" again....and then click on "Apply To All Folders".

    Thanks....with your help I found it.

    What you did it great!

    The option I mentioned is an Advanced option, which you need to scroll down the list of them to find it. It allows each individual folder to be different.
