Windows 7: Are folder views preserved in Seven?

Are folder views preserved in Seven?

I remember with Vista the folder views would change on their own at times. I.E. If I set a folder to view as "large icons", it would show "list format" instead when I went back to view it (or other view options).

The same is true if I custom sorted files in a folder. Sometimes after resetting everything would be sorted by name or size, and my custom sorting would be lost.

Has this been fixed with Seven?

Seems to be pretty well fixed. I had issues on Vista, but haven't yet had any on 7.

Can't recall a lot of complaining about the issue on this Win 7 forum.

They ARE good, DBG. I spent two whole days going through them. Found a lot of neat tricks there! Hats off to all the compilers.....and particularly for the formatting consistency of all of them!

Customising folder views
In my old Windows XP I could set the folder view for each folder individually but in Windows 7 it seems that if I change the view in one folder it changes all the folders. I have found that if I access a file by avoiding the libraries (which is a long way round) then I can do it but if I use...
