Windows 7: Pictures Library Stuck in Folder View

Pictures Library Stuck in Folder View

After removing a Pictures Library location, and subsequently adding it back right away, I cannot arrange by anything other than folder view.

The pictures can be sorted within this arrange-by view via a right-click, but no other arrange by options work.

"Clear Changes" keeps arrange by folder, but changes to detail view.

Try right clicking the libraries, and choosing restore default libraries.

Will that mess with the locations I have selected for the non-problematic libraries?

Yes, it will reset all of the libraries back to the default of windows 7. I know it will be slightly annoying for them to be reset up, but it should resolve the issue.

I just deleted the pictures library, I never really used it anyway. I'll refer to your suggestion if I ever want it back - thank you.
