No folders in my Libraries have the customize this folder option. Only folders outside of Libraries.

Ah, that would be why then.

The folder template for individual Library subfolders, Computer, or root directories like the C: drive cannot be changed in Windows 7.

You will only be able to do OPTION TWO to change the folder template for everything in a library instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Well, you could also open the folders from their original locations (ex: C:\Users\(user-name)\Pictures) instead of through the library. This way you will be able to change the folder templates of it.

Got it thanks. Although, my issue lies more in this thread: Library issue

Sorry, but you lost me. I do not see what searching for a folder in a library has to do with the folder template or changing the folder view.

I thought the folder template could be set to remember the settings for specific folders. I like to navigate with the keyboard and when I open up a folder I like to type the name of the folder that I want to quick-navigate to. In the Library folders, Explorer quick navigates to files versus folders. In the non-Library folders, folders are navigated to first and files second.
