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.

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 at 11:51
