Right click a blank place in the folder and select properties and the Customize tab. Then pick Optimize this folder and choose one you like, Apply.

This may help, run the steps outlined in this tutorial, Option Two, and reboot the system:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If that doesn't correct the issue, run it two or more times with a reboot between.
You may get this result:
Code:
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired
them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot.
Or a message that no integrity violations were found.
Or that Windows Resource Protection found errors it cannot repair, if so rerun the steps above.

Hello Beret,

You migh see if using the method in the tutorial below to set this for all folders may help.

Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

Hope this helps,

What folder is this for?

Could you post a screenshot showing this to see if it may help reveal a possible cause?

You might try resetting all folder views to default.
Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default
Afterwards, try using the tutorial below again to set all folders to have the "General Items" template (step 1) with large icons (step 2).
