The .NET OpenFileDialog functionality always displays the folder using "fixed" folder settings. The folder settings are things like thumbnails, tiles, icons, list, details and the order in which the files in the folder are displayed. The user can modify these folder settings for the current OpenFileDialog session, but I can''t find a way of keeping these settings across different open file dialog sessions like Windows explorer does. Does anyone know how to do this? Alternatively, where does the .NET OpenFileDialog class get the folder settings it uses for display?
