By default all the files and folders are viewed as Tiles format in Windows XP.

I want to change the folders and files view option to:

 View -> Details
 Arrange Icons By -> Show in Groups
 Arrange Icons By -> Types

This setting should be applied to entire file system how to do that?

Go to an example folder. Apply the view settings that you wish. Then go to Tool > Folder Options. Select the View tab. Add any additional setting from the list. Then click Apply to Folders.

This is probably you the closest you can get without 3rd party apps.
