Open any folder Switch to detailed view Click Tools > Folder Options Click the View tab Click the Apply to All Folders button

then to make it stay that way

[Start] [Run] [Regedit] Registry Key: HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell NoRoam\BagMRU Registry Key: HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell NoRoam\Bags Delete both of the keys listed above. Exit Registry and Reboot

The folder preferences must be reset after the two registry keys have been deleted.
