    Universal reg edit to for every folder to default to detailed view?


    I have tried various scripts to for windows to always display every folder to detail view. Is there such a registry edit that can accomplish this? It seems no matter what I do it always reverts back to icon display whenever an image or video is added to a folder.

    I use the built-in File Explorer view to do it. I set a Folder as I wish, namely Details. Then I click the View tab, Options, View tab and click one of the 2 choices, Apply to folders. It usually holds that setting but once in awhile viewing music or video may change it.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; First delete the views that have already been stored (the keys will be re-created automatically)
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags]
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU]
    
    ; Now change the record store to Mode 4 (Details)
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell]
    "WFlags"=dword:00000000
    "Status"=dword:00000000
    "Mode"=dword:00000004
    "vid"="{137E7700-3573-11CF-AE69-08002B2E1262}"
