XP question

  woodchip 21:52 28 Apr 2004

In Windows Explorer how do I get it to remain in Details view of a folder contents, I do not like just seeing ICONS

  Big Elf 22:00 28 Apr 2004

Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View and then click 'Apply to all folders' after selecting the details option.

Control panel-folder options-view-remember each folder's view settings?

About time you got XP woodchip ;-))

  Big Elf 22:26 28 Apr 2004

Oops, assumed it was XP, sorry.

New comp today with XP on but still got My 98se machine. If I find I don’t like it I shall sap it

Well it seems to have worked, but how do I have the Control Panel and My Computer as ICONs as they do not matter. But leave files as details

  Djohn 23:23 28 Apr 2004

Left click on the start button woody and then right click on the "My Computer" Icon and you can have it on your desktop just as in 98se Not a shortcut either but a full Icon. You can do the same for "My Documents" as well. j.

Done it that's grate. But my old Athlon clocked to 1700xp still seems a lot sharper than 2.6 Celron

  woodchip 23:31 28 Apr 2004

Not a good speller but you know what I meen

  Djohn 23:37 28 Apr 2004

Yes, your Athlon, same as mine is a good chip and will work 98se very fast. I'm still using my 1800XP with XP it does seem to be faster in most ways except for startup, 29 seconds but then I had 98se trimmed right down and it would really shift.

I know you and se are firm Friends but I think you will come to like XP over the weeks ahead. I did. and wouldn't want to change back now. ;o)
