Moving columns permanently

I'd like to put the Modification Date column immediately to the right of the file name. I can do that once, but when I open a new lister it is back where it used to be. How can I make the change permanent?

Near the top of the FAQs:
[ul][li]Folder Formats: Quick Guide -- Set the view mode, columns etc. used for all directories.[/li][/ul]

Perfect, many thanks for your help.
