When I use Windows Explorer to browse a FTP site, it defaults to Tiles view. I need it to default to List view.

I don't see a registry setting, and the standard [Tools -> Folder Options... -> View -> Apply to Folders] apparently has no effect on FTP sites.

Did you find a solution to this? – Lorentz Vedeler Aug 19 '14 at 11:08
    
No, Lorentz, I did not. – MiloDC Oct 10 '14 at 17:54
    
It seems to remember the view mode for the last few directories viewed. As you navigate around, it forgets the mode after a while, reverting back to Tiles. – Deanna Feb 25 '15 at 11:51

You may want to try defaulting the folder view settings described in the link above. If that doesn't work, try the advanced file/folder settings in the above link. Setting it to always display a specified view should persist.

Can you add in the relevant parts of the link into your answer? We ask this to help the asker out, as they will not have to read a bunch of useless information that doesn't pertain to them and to preserve the relevant information in case the hosting site goes down. For more information, see this meta post. – Cfinley Apr 8 '15 at 15:02
