You need to do it for each one. General/Pictures/Videos/Documents/Music to cover all the folder types.Then do the library ones separate.
This is how I do it.
First set your user folder to tiles view
Highlight a Document in the folder documents.(single click) Go to tools/folder options in the toolbar. Click the view tab then apply to folders.Then confirm. That will set all document file type to tiles
Do this for the folder types I posted above and that should be all of the except the libraries which you can use the folder view for.
Favourites can be used for general items
