Windows 7: Library View Settings

Library View Settings

Is there any way to set view settings for files and folders within libraries without affecting child or parent folders?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

As far as I am aware you can only set library defaults. You can't change folder views permanently. You can set them temporarily, but they will revert.

Hello Frozen,

You could have separate "Arrange by" view settings in each added right click -> New -> Folder created in the library itself though. The arrange by options will vary depending on the folder template of the library folder. All Included Folders and subfolders in a library will always share the same folder view.

OPTION THREE in the tutorial below can give you more details on this.

Hope this helps,

Ah, shame. Hopefully they'll do something about that in a future update. Do you know of anywhere one can make suggestions?

There's not yet a suggestion or feedback link available for Windows 8. This would most likely be the only avenue where this may have a chance of being changed.

I shall pass on your request to Microsoft though.

Frozen,

I got a email back letting me know that they are unable to do so in Windows 7, but it will be passed along to the Windows 8 team for feedback on it. Hopefully they will be able to.

You could always set up a second library with the view you want. You can have the same folders in it.
