Make it Wide Always
If you'd like to have your directory listings show up in wide format, try this. You need to change the DIRCMD. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click the System icon. When the System Properties dialog box opens, click the Advanced tab. Next click the Environment Variables button. Then click the New button in the User Variables area. In the Vairable Name field, type

dircmd and press Tab to move to the Value entry box. In Value, type /w and click OK. Finally, click OK to close the dialog box and apply your new settings. From this point on, typing DIR at the Command Prompt produces the wide listing.
