Default File Explorer columns for all users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to set default columns and their order of appearance for a folder and it's subfolders in a network drive so that all users who connect to that drive can view those columns without having to change them manually. I don't want the whole drive to show those columns, just a specific folder on the drive. For example, the drive has folders for each department titled Accounting, Production, and IT. I want the Accounting folder and all subfolders to show Date Created column as the first column in Details view, Production folder to use Date Modified as the first column, and IT folder to use Path as the first column.

    Is there a way to use group policy to push out registry entries to achieve this, or a startup script? I've been able to find a little bit of info online, but nothing specific to what I'm trying to do.
