WinXP/ Win7x64/ Mac OSX Snow Leopard - Multi Boot

Compared the batch files.. Same commands So I dont need to re-run it on my Win 8.1. But saved it anyways.

My Windows Explorer got funky after this, and had to boot into Safe Mode, run WE and then reboot again till things worked.

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
