Windows 7: If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
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?

Hello S35,

Is this within a Libray folder?

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