Windows 7: Setting default folder view for "The Internet" path?

Setting default folder view for "The Internet" path?

I've set the default folder view to Details for all drive folders.

But the folder I am currently working from is accessed through the internet, i.e. the file path at the top of the window starts with "The Internet".

This defaults to icon view even though I applied the Details view to all other drive folders.

Is there a way to set the default view for internet folders?

Are you able to take a screenshot of the folder in question, i'm not sure what you mean by the internet folder?

Here are a couple of screenshots.

In the first shot, you can see "The Internet" in the file path.

The second shot was taken after selecting the file path. Apparently this is an ftp folder if that makes any difference.

But it opens in Windows Explorer so I'm hoping there's a way to set the default view.

Ah so yeah these folders to my understanding don't come under the same rules that you set for default folder view as its an ftp site you are hitting, i'm not sure if it is possible?

Stick around and maybe someone else knows definitively.

Open a new window with "full path" instead of Search Results\"Path"
How can I make it such that in Search Results, when I open a folder in a new window (by right-clicking a file), I will be directed to a window with the "full path" displayed in the address bar, instead of Search Results\"Path" or Search Results>"Path"? Edit: "Right-click -> open file location"...

Can folders default the View to: "LIST", not Detail?
When I open a folder in 7, unless I previously set it to a specific view setting, it seems to always auto default to "Detail" unless I change it manually. Is there an easy way to make folders default to LIST automatically when I open them each time? Thanx.
