How does one set Windows 7 Windows Explorer to ALWAYS open with the files in LIST view -- with no DETAILS, etc.?

All of my e-searching turns up nothing about whether or not MS-we-know-what's-best-for-you Windows 7 even has this capability.

Any info most appreciated. Thanks!

I was wondering the same ago and realized that it saves this view to the exact folder you set it up. You want every folder in the explorer to be with the same view ? Folder options would be a place to look for setting and views. I think there is the answer.

windows explorer view settings
Is there any way to prevent the 'view' setting in Win 7 from being global and changing every folder in the computer. I have three win 7 machines and they all do it. And why did 'thumbnails' become 'icons'??

Windows Explorer - Drive View
The new pinstack in Windows 7 is cool but one thing I don't like is the 'library' the default Explorer icon takes you to. To fix this and restore a basic 'drive view' is quite simple; See Also: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2863-windows-explorer-taskbar-icon-change-open-target.html ...
