I can do but after some time (one hour ... one day .. one week ...) all my folders, including "Medium Icons" mode, are all Details mode.
I know we can change the mode for each directory, but it is much too long.
I want to change their directory AND subdirectories in one operation, without changing the view mode of the other directories.
The directories that I want to set "Medium Icons" mode is on the "Desktop" (Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate).
In the following, assume a folder named "Parent", with subfolders named "A", "B", "C" and "D".
- Open Explorer
- Navigate to the folder named "Parent"
- Right-click an unused part of the folder view, then select "Properties"
- Click the Customize Tab
- Select the appropriate view type (General Items, Pictures, etc) from the "Optimize this folder for" dropdown box
- Make sure the "Also apply this temple to all subfolders" is checked
- Click OK
- Make attitional view changes, such as icon size, or visible columns
- Click "Organize" in the top left of Explorer
- Click "Folder and search options"
- Click "View"
- Click Apply To All Folders"
- Click OK
If I have misunderstood what you want, and expect (for example) both "Icons" and "Details" views for a single folder, then the answer is no - it cannot be done. One Folder View setting per folder.
And the desktop can only be set to Icons view of varying sizes...
