Not sure if this is what you are after, but ....

Right click Windows Explorer icon > Properties - Target box and replace .exe in the Target line with .scf ...

%SystemRoot%\explorer.scf

See attachment - this is what you see when you Right click Windows Explorer icon > Properties ......

If the view looks unfamiliar I run XP in Classic mode, aka Win 98

Command-Line Switches for Windows Explorer



HOW TO: Customize the Windows Explorer Views in Windows XP

http://support.microsoft.com/default...307856&sd=tech

Examples

The following examples describe the use of Windows Explorer switches.

Explorer /n
This command opens an Explorer window using the default setting. This is usually the root of the drive on which Windows is installed.

Explorer /e
This command starts Windows Explorer using the default view.

Explorer /e,C:\Windows
This command starts Windows Explorer using the default view, with the focus on C:\Windows.

Explorer /root, C:\Windows\Cursors
This command starts Windows Explorer at the C:\Windows\Cursors folder. This example uses C:\Windows\Cursors as the "root" directory for Windows Explorer.

NOTE: Note the comma after the "/root" switch in the command.
Explorer /select, C:\Windows\Cursors\banana.ani
This command starts Windows Explorer with the "C:\Windows\Cursors\banana.ani" file selected.

NOTE: Note the comma after the "/select" switch in the command.
The Windows Explorer switches can be combined in a single command. The following example shows the combination of the Windows Explorer command-line switches.
Explorer /root, \\server\share, select, Program.exe
This command starts Windows Explorer using the remote share as its "root" folder, along with the Program.exe file selected.

When you have above folder loaded/displayed to your preference, have you tried ..
Tools | Folder Options | View | Apply to All Folders
