Windows Explorer Search-get results in 'Detail' view

By TranMan ·
Anyone have any idea how to change the default view of the 'Search Results' folder to 'Details'?

I've tried all of the 'normal' stuff like navigating to another folder that's in detail view and told it to 'set every folder view like this one'.

Thinking there must be a registry setting...?

Scroll down to #54, download the registry fix in the right column to "Save Settings on Exit".
