I have been trying to find a solution to a frustrating Windows problem for a long time... Finally found one for the File Open\Save requester. Here is the link:

It's a free app that allows you to customize the file requester dialogue box to default to Details Mode.. ahh.. big help along with creating a default size to open(among other features) For those of us on a computer all day.. it sure helps to keep the frustation factor down.. navigating for files..

Prolly a registry hack that could accomplish this.. but have not found it yet.. If anyone knows.. please share..

Cool, you can do that without hacking too. Open an open file window, arrange/resize the window how you like, then ctrl-click the file requester's [X] button. The next time, it comes back like you had it.

Tried that on LW Modeler and Messiah, wordpad and several others... did not work for any except MS Office. Seems to be a feature of the way they designed their software to work.. other software does not seem to work using the keyboard shortcut..

Found this one in my search too, but had already DL\installed the other.. Does this tool allow you to make the File requester open in Details View Menu mode?

Oh that's weird. I'm using 64bit XP and it works for every app. FileBox eXtender is nice! I like the easy favorites integration.
