Windows 7: Can I copy Explorer column headings from 1 folder to another, not all?

Can I copy Explorer column headings from 1 folder to another, not all?

Is there a way to "save/template" the columns in Explorer? For example I have several folders with video content. In each folder when I explore I want to see specific column headings e.g. Type, Size, Length, Frame rate, Video tracks, etc. The list is long and it's a pain to set them up each time.

I don't want to save the desired column headings to ALL folders, just specific ones. Would be nice if Windows had a way for you to save named column templates to accomplish this.

Anyone have a clever alternative?

Hello wgfbean, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could apply them to all folders that only use the same template (ex: "Videos").

Fantastic! I had alway assumed (bad idea) that "Apply to Folders" would change every folder. After reading the info you pointed out now I understand.

Thank you very much.
