Windows Explorer Set Defaults For Columns?
In Windows Explorer in Windows 7 I like to use the Details view. I have set of columns/headings that I prefer to use. The problem is I would like to set these columns up and have them be the default for every folder I open. As it is now every folder I open I have to customize the columns again. They stay for that folder but every new folder requires me to customize. Is there a default option so that I can set what I want and have it apply to every folder?
I just installed Windows 7 a few days ago. Prior to this I had XP on the machine that 7 is now on. I did not use Explorer in XP I used a different file manager. I did this mainly for the split view. Now that 7 as the snap feature getting two panes is easy with Explorer so I am going to give it a try for a while. Thanks.

Hello Anomaly, and welcome to Seven Forums.
After you have the folder views and columns set how you like them for that folder, you could do either one of the tutorials below to set it for other folders.
For all folders:
Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders
For all folders only with the same folder template as the original
Folder View - Apply to Folders
Hope this helps,
