I understand that you could not change the user libraries default view, right?
I would like in my music library, the folders containing other folders have a list view, and folders containing music files have a detailed view, with my column selection.
You could still change the folder view of a library, but all included folders in the library share the same folder view. The included folders in a library cannot have their own separate folder views.

yes ok. Well, it's not a very serious problem. I think I just survive without it.

Yeah, that's the only downfall with libraries and all included folders sharing the same folder view.
