DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Rob=== Dear Webby: This is another "Open files" question. I would like to set the view of the "open file" sub-menu of all "file" dialog boxes, common to all programs(?), to Details, as the default. This is not under Win Explorer, it's the dropdown menu when you open a program, then open a file. I guess it might be a registry tweak, since the it looks like the menus are called from Windows. Thanks, Rob Dear Rob The detail view is regulated by the file explorer settings. Here is a fix that works for a while. Print it out, because after a while Windows will go senile on it and go back to the rather un-informative and useless "bimbo-proof default", and you'll have to fix things again. 1) In the explorer window select your view of choice. (e.g. details, icons etc) 2) select the tools --> folder options and select the view tab. 3) Make sure that the option "Remember each folder's view setting" is turned off. 4) Now click apply to all folders. Have FUN! DearWebby
