Re-setting all folders and files

I have 10,000 pictures in a couple of hundred folders so I'm trying to Re-set all folders and files to details or large or whatever and I forgot how to do it because it has been a long time since I did this so can someone tell me how because I'm getting old and can't remember?

Hello Richard,

This should allow you to do what you are wanting to do.

(for what you want for all folders)
Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

(to restore default folder views)
Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

Hope this helps,

For digital photos management, I exclusively use Irfanview a freely downloadable program. This program has a browse Irfanview thumbnails program which is good for viewing a number of photos in thumbnail views. These thumbnails are resizable and very fast.

Using Irfanview program you can view, make some minor changes, resize, and much more. This is a invaluable tool for a photography enthusiast. Please go through the author's website and the program and give it a try. You'll like it...
