Windows 7: Windows 7 Icon Sizes

Windows 7 Icon Sizes

Hi. I am currently with a problem in windows7 Professional about the size of icons.

For example, I get to the My Documents folder and put the icons in size Small, then I go into a sub-folder within the My Documents folder and put the icons in size Large. When I did that last action, Windows automatically changes My Documents folder icon size to Large and I don't want that, basically what I wanted was that Windows saves the definitions for the size of icons in different folders, which it does not.

To overcome this problem have been suggested ShellFolderFix, I tried it but what it does is saving the size and position of the various windows.

Someone help me? Cump's

Hello Oxigenio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

All Included Folders and subfolders in a "library" will always share the same folder view. You can have separate folder view settings in each added new folder in the library though.

Hope this helps,
