Windows 7: How do you apply a folder's view settings and apply it to ALL others

24 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
How do you apply a folder's view settings and apply it to ALL others

For example I have a folder in my desktop with pictures, videos, documents, music, etc. I organized it by grouping by type, somewhere between large & extra large thumbnails, and a few other things. I want these settings applied to all other folders. I went to folder options and applied it to other folders. Nothing changed. My other folders, including my picture folder is still the same way it was. How do I apply to ALL folders?

Also 2nd question - I know you can zoom in on thumbnails by hitting ctrl + mouse scroll wheel, but is there a way you can do it with a keyboard and not the mouse?
