Windows 7: Folder view Reg file for settings

Folder view Reg file for settings

Hey guys,

Is there any way to make a reg file that I can tweak ALL the windows explorer views to show just the following: Name | Size | Date modified

Windows drives me crazy with it's "defaults" for various views.

Any help appreciated.

You could just arrange it as you like, once for each type (there are only 5 types), and after changing each file type, navigate to Folder Options\View and click on the Apply to Folders 'button' (bar, actually). This will change the folder views for all folders of that type to the settings you specify.

The file types are: General, Documents, Pictures, Music and Video.
