Windows 7: To specify Explorer view settings in a shortcut -- possible?

To specify Explorer view settings in a shortcut -- possible?

G'day everyone

For all of my folders, I use the detailed view in Explorer, but for one specific folder I sometimes want to use tiled view. I mean I mostly want to use detailed view, but on some specific occasions I need to use tiled view for that folder.

What I'm hoping is possible is to create a shortcut (e.g. from my Desktop) to that folder, in such a way that the shortcut properties specify which view should be used when the folder is opened using that particular shortcut.

Is that at all possible?

Alternatively, is there a way that a folder can be launched with certain view settings, using e.g. a script or commandline method?

Thanks
Samuel

If you set a folders properties from tools-folder options, the view of that one folder will be saved, it only affects everything if you click the apply to all folders which obviously you wont.

That does not answer my question specifically but I can live with this solution, thanks.
