If I read your post incorrectly, you can change the Folder Options in the Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Folder Options
No. What I don't like is the 3D view of the folder on its side when the folder view is set to icon. I want something similar to XP where it showed the front of a folder and you could place an image on the front of the folder or by default it showed four images from the folder.

I like the size of the folder icons in large or extra large view but they do not give a quickly recognizable indication of the images in the folder as well as XP did (I think Vista is pretty much the same as Win7). The images inside the folder icon are at an angle and are hard to recognize quickly.

Just from the explorer, press ALT => Tools menu => Folder Options.

Once there, and once the current folder has the default view you want,
check the View tab and hit the "Apply to folders" button.
Thanks, I know how to get to folder options. The thing I want to change is not available in the folder options.

Also, while I'm at it, is there any way to show the folder size in details view. I don't think any Windows version has done this and cannot understand why.
