Hello Boyer,

In a library, all included folders share the same view settings. Each separate library will have it's own view settings though.

The only way around this would be to open the folders directly from the source location instead of from inside the library.

i figured it out, since i can optimize each for a differnet thing, general, music, videos, etc, i just made sure each was different, so that when i changed the view on one, it didnt change any of the others
