I would like to remove the file type column from all of the sub folders of a specific directory. If I do it the way depicted in the picture, it will not affect the subfolders. Please give me a hint. Thank you enter image description here

You must click on "Apply to all folders" in Explorer options:

Now Windows uses the view for all folders (which match the current folder type like video, music, pictures, documents, general)

Try this:

  1. Right click on the column bar and click on More.
  2. Check (add) and uncheck (remove) columns from the available listed details that you want to add or remove, then click on OK when finished.
