Is there a way to hardwire Windows Explorer to use the Details view as a default?

I want to set all my files and folders in Windows to show as Extra large icons.

It seems that Windows is saving this apart for each folder...

Where can I tell my system to use the view type everywhere?

  • Go to a folder setup how you want it.

  • Hit "Alt" to show the Menu.

  • Pick Tools-->Folder Options.

  • Pick the View tab.

  • Click "Apply To All Folders".

This may not work so well for library folders, as Windows 7 likes to treat them special. :)

I just have to do the same action for each Library, will accept your answer (in 7 min) until I see deviation. – Tom Wijsman Apr 8 '12 at 19:19
