Windows 7: Folder View

Folder View

I set my folder view (via more options) to the "Detailes" view.
But regularly it switches automatically to "Large Icons" view.
My config is: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

Is there a solution?

If you set default options for Libraries, then you can't change these permanently for individual folders.

You might like to have a look in this section for various information and tutorials;
