Default XP Safe Mode View Details

When in Safe Mode (XP),
and going into explorer,
the files are listed as "Tiles".
I want them to start as "details".
Anyone heard of a way to change the registry,
to default to details?

Tx for any comments.

Default Re: XP Safe Mode View Details

Try this first:
  • Fire up Explorer under safe mode
  • Organise your view to your likings (change to list as details, etc.)
  • Folder Options > View > Apply to All Folders

If the above fails, then try to edit the registry:
  • Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Streams
  • Find the entry similar to this: "Settings"=hex:08,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,77,7e,13,73,35,cf,11,ae,6 9,08,00,2b,2e,12,62,04,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,43,00, 00,00
  • Make sure the value in bold is "04" (sans quotes)
If these doesn't work, it doesn't work. Safe mode is not normal usage.

p.s. For some odd reason, the editor is inserting random spaces in my reply, and I can't get them out... Just disregard them.

OK, I've done these 2 suggestions.
It did not change.
I remember someone in the past,
who may have caused the change,
by some other registry change.
I just have to keep looking with Google,
and other sites.

Any reason why you must achieve this in safe mode?
