How to define the settings for Open File Dialog in SE

Hi Edgers,

when opening a file from within SE the appearing of the OpenFileDialog always looks different, depending on which folder man is watching.


If I define the view type (detail), the columns, columns width etc. for one specific folder, this seems to be stored soemwhere.

Changing the folder to a different one, again changes the appearing, using a default.


Now I want to have a specific arrangement for my OpenFileDialog but not depending on a specific folder, no a general default OFD


Can this be done somehow, and how can I tell SE to use it.



PS.: when i save the general explorer setting for windows file explorer, this will be kept and used afterwards.

But this has no influence to the Solid Edge Open File Dialog


PS2.: where I also haven't found a solution so far, is to tell the explorer and/or SE OFD how my search results should look like. They are also always different, depending on which start folder man is using.
