On an XP PC with Chrome when I click insert file the folder "Open" has a default "List" view, even when the default view for the original folder is "Details" sorted by date. I have to change the view and then sort by date to find the most recent file.

How can I get Gmail to remember that I have changed the view and use that the next time I select "Open"?

Isn't this a Windows default, or at least browser-specific, rather than a Gmail-as-a-web-app issue? – Charles Lindsay Nov 1 '12 at 21:09
