Getting folders to look the same

I have details on my folders, I can add some columns for certain items. But its only for that folder, isn't there a way to get a folders and subfolders to look the same way?

Doing Properties/Customize/also apply to this template to all subfolders - didn't work.

Hello EpiCenter,

The tutorial below can help show you how to apply a folder view to all folders in Windows 7. See the "Related tutorials" link at the bottom of the tutorial for more options as well.

Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yeah, doesn't seem to work - there are folders who resist the global change (unless i need to reboot first)

It should be applied to all folders except the small File -> "Save as", "Open" common dialog type windows, libraries. It will also not affect window size and position.

If it's not any of the above, then what folder (full path) is it not being applied to? I'll do some testing on it to see what the issue may be.

Perhaps its just because its different drives. But don't bother more about that Brink. I have far greater problems to have solved (like getting zonealarm to work on windows 7 to prevent selectively outgoing connections - not like it is now, occasionally everything)

If it's a removable drive, then folder view settings will not be remembered for it.

I have somehow made a disastrous mess of my favorites. I looked online for answers to this problem, and all I can find for a solution is cut and paste. This makes no sense to me for this particular issue because there's no way to "un-indent" a sub-folder and move it back in line with the primary...
