Windows 7 Explorer Detail default view Registry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    during planing our Windows 7 Migration, we want to achieve that the Default view for Windows Explorer ist set to Details. Like this:

    We want this to deploy if possible via GPP. Already searched in the Forum, but I´ve only found old Posts for Windows XP and how to Setup it manually via the gui, so that wasn´t helpful. Is there a registry key to set the Explorer to the Details view?

  • Hi,

    There is no proper way setting Detailed view as standard through GPOs, GP Preference and registry found for Win 7.

    The registry settings for Win XP are not valid for Win 7.

    Hope this helps,
