Show OPEN oe SAVE dialogs in List View?

  terrypin 15:24 06 May 2008

My applications insist on showing Save As > My Pictures and File > Open > My Pictures in
Thumbnail view. How can I change this *default* to List View please, like all my other 'normal' folders?

It seems hard-coded into XP that when you open a My Pictures (or My Videos) browsing pane, you want to see thumbnails. I definitely do not! I have scores of sub-folders in these very large folders, and I want to see their *names*, and as many at once as possible.

Note that I am not asking about customising Explorer/My Computer views. This is about the browse dialogs opened by all applications.

I use OpenWide to increase the size of the File dialogues, apparently it can force particular views to stay selected too; click here
