Windows 7: change icon size for certain folder only?

change icon size for certain folder only?

Let's say there is a folder1 and a subfolder.
subfolder is inside of the folder1.

Is there a way to make the file icons in subfolder extra large and make file icons in folder1 extra small?


Thanks,

Hello Tozymba,

As long as this is not in a library, then yes. You should be able to just set the icon view size to how you like in each folder using any one of the options in the tutorial below.

Icon Size - Change in Windows Explorer Window

Hope this helps,

You're most welcome.

While all Included Folders and subfolders in a library will always share the same folder view, you can have separate Arrange by view settings in each added right click -> New -> Folder created in the library itself though.
