Thank you for the info Art - but those are two roads already traveled on this -
One approach tried was the
as Peter Crawford suggests - I don't find the DETAILs setting.
Also read through the DeVenezia site and a related paper last week - again - nothing on DETAILs that I saw. Maybe I missed it.
Thanks again for the pointer in any case.

I think you were right on both counts, at least if it was the following
Peter Crawford paper that mentions Richard's page. The two can be found
and, hopefully, are the two sources you were thinking of.

>Yes, "Options DETAILS" works in the program, autoexec, and config, as
does the explorer options menu checkbox.

>A few years ago I edited the switch to "on", but don't remember how I got
to it. I'm guessing it was a DeVenezia or Crawford paper or post, but I
can't locate it. I currently have the option turned off via my autoexec,
but would like to simply have it "off". The checkbox switches it off
during the session, but does not change in future sessions, even
with "save settings on exit" turned on.
>The problem is that the "details" option works okay with a small number
of files, but we changed our data model and now have folders with several
hundred files each. SAS Explorer takes a minute or two reading all the
details whenever I click into a library, which is frequent. I'd like the
DETAILS default in the registry back to "off".
