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... :)
