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?

Using shortcuts, it isn't possible to select the verb (don't ask me why!). However, armed with the information above you can try this...
1) Open regedit.exe
2) Navigate to the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell
3) Set the default value of this key to explore
4) Try double-clicking a folder.
I'm not recommending this method, but it works (on my system). I recommend using right-click¦Explore since this will work on all Windows computers.
Start > Control Panel > Folder Options
File Typestab. 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.
I believe that is it anyway.
