I don't know of a way to get windows explorer to do that but you can use third party software to get column view with the contents of each folder displayed in a new column.

I use several explorer alternatives - one of those is Ultra Explorer Portable and it can be configured to do what you are asking for.

yargd -

In my Start, on the right side, are additional folder titles (music, video, documents, downloads etc.) and are configured to display as a menu (indicated by the small triangle to the right of the name). In my system, e.g., I clik :

Start > Music > Jazz > Artist > Album ... (after 'Music' all the various sub-folders display and keeps cascading until no more folders are present in the path.

Enabling navigation pane in explorer windows will also show subfolders.

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
