Two Questions: Windows 7 Preview Pane & Changing Photo's Creation Date

Hey, I'm new to the forums and I'm not sure how frequent you've been asked this question...

Is there a way to keep a default setting for your folders, like having things viewed in list, viewed in groups and the preview pane being set at a specific size? Every time I exit a folder it resets. Is there anyway around this?

Also my next question can refer to Windows 7 or a free program for Windows 7. My phone/iPod and other programs of that nature list my images by created date. I tried changing the date of photos with a few programs. One problem I've encountered is that it's not sequential. If I have a lot of images in 1 folder and I want them organized by date created, I want them to be changed by alphabetical order. With the first picture being the earliest and the last one being the latest. But most programs just change the folder's images to the same date. And since there's a lot of photos in one folder, it's still the same problem. They're all scrambled, but just by the same date. Any ideas on how to change the creation date of multiple images in alphabetical order without doing one by one?

set up the folder they way you want it to look folder icon size, window size etc then click organize /folders and search options . click the view tab and then click apply to folders. there are some extra check box options in the list in view tab.
im not sure about the preview pane resizing, i open the preview pane and its the same size i sized it to earlier, i then click the preview button to hide the pane until i need to look closer at a pic or icon etc re opening the pane has it the same size

I tried that for the Desktop folder. It worked in preserving the folder's settings, but the preview pane is still either too large or small. It's not "set" to a default size. Also when I hit "apply to all other folders...", I went to my pictures folders and it did not apply it there. Does it work only to folders within the folder I clicked in? And even then, wouldn't my pictures folder technically be under my Desktop folder?
