I have just replaced a computer for my one client <snip> and she swears that the old one would always open her Windows Explorer panels with the split-view: Folders¦Files - You can toggle this view with the [Folders] button on the toolbar.
I have used the usual Folder Options > View Settings > [Apply to All Folders] and everything is saved but the split-view. Since this is a new installation of XP, I am quite sure this is not a "400 settings" memory issue. I have Googled and Ask'd and searched our forums here, finding nothing specific to this split-view issue.
Does anybody here know the trick?

Start > Control Panel > Folder Options
Click the File Types tab. Page down until you locate the icon that looks like a folder in the "Extensions" column. It will have the word "(NONE)" after the icon and the "File Types" column will show Folder. Not "File Folder", but just "Folder". Select that entry and click the Advanced button. From that window you can set the default action to "explore" and click "OK". Click "OK" again to close out of the Folder Options. From now on when you double click a folder you will go into the default two-panel navigation.
