There's a "picture view" for Windows XP folders. I keep creating new folders in a directory and adding pictures to them.

Every time I create a new folder, I have to go through the added action of creating a new text document named description.txt and then setting the folder to picture view mode (dropdown: view->picture). I don't mind the keystrokes, but I want to be a Super User!

You cannot. The info about folder view is stored in the registry, not the folder itself.

Could I alter the registry for a folder and all its descendants to give them a default folder view? – Wolfpack'08 Jan 28 '12 at 11:23
@Wolfpack'08 No, because it’s an undocumented compressed binary structure. – kinokijuf Jan 28 '12 at 14:05
