Hello, this is my first post in Windows 7 Forums. First of all, let me congratulate and thank you for the great community you have here. I installed Windows 7 some days ago and everything I needed to know about it I found it here. I'm loving this OS
After searching around in the tutorials, I haven't found how to do this. You see, I want to force Windows to use medium icons as its default choice. When I create a folder, Windows sets the view to Details, which I find terribly small and annoying. I've tried both going to a folder with medium icons and "applying to all folders" through folder options and manually setting each folder to "documents" and applying to all those that share its template... but I still get folders set to Details.
Is there a way to make Windows ALWAYS use medium icons? I'd rather customize the few folders I want in a different style manually, rather than having to set the thousands of folders I want to use medium icons.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Now I realise I'm not able to add favourites to, well, my Favourites folder. I want to add a quick link to the desktop and my download folder just like here
. I've tried right clicking the favourites icon and adding current location to Favourites to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
