Is it possible to have Windows copy and move dialog boxes always display the "More details" segment without having to ask every time? enter image description here

Apparently, you can do that using the Classic Shell freeware as explained here.
You only need to select the Classic Explorer component when installing.

However, note that installing the program seems to change a couple of settings (which you might not want).

what "couple of settings" are changed when installing? – warren Apr 29 '11 at 17:24
I installed all 3 components of Classic Shell, so as a result the start menu was changed to a classic start menu. Probably easy to undo by checking the right settings. I didn't check any other things for changes though, I uninstalled after that. – Rabarberski Apr 29 '11 at 19:15
thanks - this works great! (I'm just using the 'Explorer' component - don't want the start menu altered) – warren Apr 29 '11 at 19:17
