    Ok , set the folder to the size you want then go to organize, folder and search options, click the view tab and click apply to folders button, you may have to do this a few times in different folders, im sure there is a way to set it for this type of folder type ,will have a look.

    heres brinks tutorial he explains it better.

    Hello Riptorn,

    I'm not sure if I fully understand what you want or not, so let me know if not.

    The divider that you mention is actually the preview pane width border instead. This is a universal setting that affects all folders in Windows 7. You change the width in any other folder, and it will change it in all of them.

    If you do not want to have "Details" folder view, then you could click on View (menu bar) and select one of the icon view sizes instead.
    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Please mark in your screenshot this divider so that we are 100% sure of which one you meant. :)

    Set it to how you want it, and close the folder. Now open the folder again. Does it open back the same way as you just last closed it?

    If it does, then remember that if you change the width of the preview pane in any other folder, it changes it in all of them.

    If it does not, then reset all folder views back to default, and try again. You may have to turn the preview pane back on afterwards though.

    Also Riip if you like, open any folder, in the upper right is the show/hide preview pane icon. You can click this to toggle the preview pane on or off for all folders.
