I am pretty sure the .bat file does not reset Folder Templates (General, Documents, Music, Pictures & Videos) back to their default view and sort by settings, but I want to be 100% sure.
I have a machine that is due for a client this Friday, so I decided to put everything together and load the OS. It's a AMD A10 Trinity build (not that the hardware matters) running on Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 with all the latest updates and mobo drivers (drivers downloaded directly from OEM website).
This is what I did step by step, I have 2 folders on my desktop. One folder contains mp3 files and the other .jpg files.
The default Music Template
View as Details
Sort by Name
I changed the View settings from Details to List.
I then went into Folder Options -> View tab and clicked "Apply to Folders" so everything associated with Music will be in List
The default Pictures Template
View as Large Icons
Sort by Name
I changed the View settings from Large Icons to Extra Large Icons
and Sort by Name to Sort by Type.
I then went into Folder Options -> View tab and clicked "Apply to Folders" so everything associated with Pictures will be viewed in Extra Large Icons
and sorted by Type.
After that was set and done I went ahead and executed the .bat file (Windows_7_Reset_All_Folders_To_Default_Folder_Views.bat)
After Explorer was killed and restarted I rebooted the machine just in case.
After the machine was done rebooting I went and check my Music and Picture folders, their View and Sort by settings did not change, it did not reset to their default View and Sort by settings.
I am now 100% certain the .bat files do not reset All Folder Templates back to their default View and Sort by settings.
