    Hello Zapppa, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Yes, but you will need to close the window after the change to that folder for it to be remembered for the next time you open that specifc folder window from the specific path location. Windows 7, like Vista, will only remember the folder view settings for a windows for when it was last closed.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    What are the full file paths for these folder locations? I'll see if I can replicate what you are seeing.

    That's what I was starting to think what was hapenning. In a Library, it combines all of the folders that are included in it as one folder. Any change to one will change all the other folders in that library. This is normal. :)

    Just pick a view for your library and stick with it. If it is pictures, use thumbnails, if not, then don't , etc... it is not meant for you to have different views in different parts of the same library.

    You could create a shortcut for the C:\Users\zapppa\Documents\Folder location and place it somewhere for easy use instead. (Ex: Start Menu or task bar)
