Windows 7: Permanently set Removable Drive(s) Folder Views

28 Nov 2016   #1

Permanently set Removable Drive(s) Folder Views

Excuse me Please:

I am looking for a simple customization that was easy to affect on winXP, yet, not so much on win7proSP164bit.
I have used the batch file to assure the rest of the operating system to use General Items Folder Template.
Yet removable drives somehow do not seem to remember any of these changes.

This was never a problem on winXPpro, the OS *ALWAYS* remembered to show removable drives with the SAME template as the other folders on the HDD.

How might I assure that *ANY* removable drive is shown in the same manner as the rest of the HDD?

Thank you kindly for the assistance.

Are folder views preserved in Seven?
I remember with Vista the folder views would change on their own at times. I.E. If I set a folder to view as "large icons", it would show "list format" instead when I went back to view it (or other view options). The same is true if I custom sorted files in a folder. Sometimes after...

Can there be different folder views?
Apologies guys... I have another (what seems to be straight forward question) In Windows Vista you are able to change each folder's view i.e. My digital photo folders use the medium icon thumbnail view, but my apps folder uses the list view and so on... When I change a view in Windows 7 it...
