Make dialog windows default to "More details"?

Does anyone know how to set the dialog windows to "More details" (as the default view)?

If I am not mistaken the only solution for now is 3rd party apps like Classic Shell.

One of the reasons why there are no native solutions is described here.

Thanks for that link Neutron16.

Also, thanks to Ivo for investigating.

I have tried TeraCopy (using the replace Explorer option).
It balks if you try to move items in protect locations.
For example:
All Users Start Menu
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
I haven't tried Classic Shell.
I don't like replacing built-in OS functions (see TeraCopy above).

Have you tried Supercopier ?
It has many options, it has the option to "show Details" always.
