Windows 7: Save Thumbnail Size/View upon Reboot

Save Thumbnail Size/View upon Reboot

Sooo..for the most part...I hate the list/details view in Explorer...
I like seeing extra large images/folders as they are all nicely customized...

Upon every re-boot... they seem to revert back to "details" view.
Its not a huge deal as I can pinch and zoom them to the size I want..

but after enough years its getting a bit annoying...
and I was wondering if there was a way to change this...

thanks for reading

set up the folder the way you want thumb size etc then click organize / folder and search options, click the view tab then click the apply to folders button.

Thanks Boohbah! lmao!

It helps speed things up a bit..
the only thing is it sets all folder views to the same thing..
I was wondering if there was a way to "lock" different view styles and size...

I always wondered about the optimize folder option...I did a test..and selected "optimize for image"
and it changed that folder to details view?? LOL

I once downloaded a program I think it was "Universal Windows Tweaker" had an option for opening folders exactly as they where upon re-boot. I can't remember if it saved the view styles either..will do more research...
