Is there a way to set the List view option as the default for all of my File Open dialogs (all programs) in Windows 7? Mine is always the Details view, which tends to make for a lot of scrolling to find the file or folder I need.

That may work for what you tested it on, but it doesn't work that way in Word 2007. Even if I change the initial File Open dialog to the List view, when I click on a folder in that view, the next folder's view comes up Details view. It doesn't even remember
the setting from one folder to the next in the same application.
I'm very disappointed that this has been chosen as the way it works without any way for the user to customize it to his desires. For all the things I like about Windows 7 even over Windows XP Professional (and I was rather satisfied with that version), this
definitely is disappointing and feels like a step backwards.
