Windows 7: Windows explorer can't remember the details view on ftp folders

Windows explorer can't remember the details view on ftp folders

I set my explorer window so details and went into option so it can be the default, but when I browse a ftp folder, it still has the "tiles" by default.

Can't I set details also for ftp folders ?

Are the ftp Folders on your computer or on a Server? I've found that the Folders on my Domain aren't affected/retained by the Folder Options, View settings on the computers I use to log in and transfer files.

Tell folder to remember view type ie details or thumb
I am sure that XP used to remember whether a folder was last viewed in details/thumb preview mode etc. Windows 7 seems to just switch it on or off for all folders. Is there a way to get explorer to remember the way it viewed the folders the last time you were in that folder. Cheers, Lee
