Change folder view to "Classic View"

1 New Member
Not sure if you'd need an activex control but I'm looking for a script to change the folder view to "Classic View" within IE.

I have an iframe that loads the users My Documents folder and would like it to display in 'Classic View' as opposed to the default 'Crap View' with the common tasks pane on the left-hand side.

I'm very retarded with JS so please understand.

Most likely you will need an ActiveX control and use JScript/vbscript, not Javascript. Even if what you want to do is possible, it would only work in IE, and that too with security restrictions relaxed.

Is this for your own use locally? Perhaps you could ask in the Windows forum for a registry setting that could default to Classic View.
