Now browse another folder and it will have the same settings. You can adjust the column widths and the visible columns before doing this and it will remember them too.
This problem occurs because Windows stores each folder's view settings and customizations in the registry. By default, this data is limited to 200 local folders and to 200 network folders, for a total of 400 folders.
