tip: windows explorer view

I found this when I finally decided to bother to search for it. I wanted to always have the explorer folder view active in windows. As with most things Windows, it is something that makes little intuitive sense until it is explained. Gee, why couldn't this be part of the attributes that are saved with a normal "make these settings apply to all folders". Nah, that would make too much sense.

Open a folder,
then go to View, Explorer Bar, Folders (or hold down Alt and type V,E,O) for short. To make it permanent, open My Computer and go to Tools, Folder Options, File Types and find the folder icon next to (none) and Folder. Click it, go to Advanced click Explore, then Set Default.
