folder view settings

I just got windows 7 a few weeks ago and wanted to know if it remembers the folder views as well as xp ? When i had vista and i would configure all my folders,the sizes of the folders and the icons inside would rearrange and get all disconfiguered again.Like if i set some folders with medium icons some of them would become small icons..Also thumbnails pictures would dissapear and be replaced by some other pictures than the ones you originally customized..Has this problem been fixed in windows 7 ?

Hi Gbp007.

Windows 7 has this problem pretty much resolved and the applications of new views and settings work very well indeed.

Have a look at the following tutorial which should provide you with all the information you require: Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

Hope this helps.
