Windows 7: Windows Explorer - Defaulting Customized View Settings

Windows Explorer - Defaulting Customized View Settings

I have a folder containing sub folders, obviously.
The contents of the sub-folders default to "Large Icons" in the right view pane. I would prefer to view the information using "Details" with some additional customized fields (frame height, frame width).
Is there a way that I can assign my preferred settings as a default for all the sub-folders rather than having to repeat all these steps every time I open a new sub-folder?
