Windows 7: Making All Folders Show In Medium Icons View

Making All Folders Show In Medium Icons View

Is there an easy way to make every folder on my computer show in Medium Icons view by default?

I have tried Clicking on my C drive and using alt/tools/folder options/View/Apply view settings to all folders of this type but this does not seem to work.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Chris
