Tree view registry setting


 Share

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the registry setting to make tree view the default?

I know how to set this within windows [Tools->Options->File Types->Folder->Advanced->explore], but not through the registry, so I can make it unattended.

Any ideas? I've done a search and it came up with nothing.

In XP, to open explorer.exe in tree view, the command would be explorer.exe /e

In the registry, there are some entries in

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262}\shell\explore\command

explorer --> %SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /e,/idlist,%I,%L

&

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262}\shell\open\command

open --> %SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /idlist,%I,%L

I suppose you can change the 2nd registry key

from

%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /idlist,%I,%L

to

%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /e,/idlist,%I,%L

I think that should work. (not tested through)
