How can I set a folder view to all my folders in my PC?

By default my folders are displaying in LIST format... I want to set all my folders in 'TILES' format permanently.

I read many tuts on this forum... but couldn't find the tut what I need.

Hey Danny,

Thanks for the quick reply and that tut is for setting a default folder template... like General items, pics etc,. I need to set a folder view like 'TILES' to all my folders in the PC.



EDIT: Did you get my point? :O

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

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
