Perm. Folder options.. file listing/columns changes.

Hello.
I have problem with Windows 7 folder/file listing behavior.
I 'appliy to folders' to my liking(view -> details) but Windows 7 keep changing its file listing to certain folders.


for example.. currently listed with columns
Name | Date modified | Type | Size (+ other options.. applied to all folders)

BUT if 1 folder has too many MP3/Video file(or any type of 1 similar file types) Folder setting reconfigs itself to something like this
Name | # | Title | Cont. artists | Album (it also changed initial 'sort by' & 'group by' settings. it actually removed/unchecked those settings.)

Forgot to mention that these *changed itself* folders were initially displayed correctly.


is there any way to fix this problem?


Thanks in advance. (sorry about ninja edit)

Are you changing these settings in Control Panel > Folder Options?

Try changing the settings by going to Control Panel > Folder Options.

You should get more Universal results than just Tools > Folder Options.
