  1. How to set custom folder view for 1 folder


    Okay so here's a stupid problem to have. I'm on Windows 10 Pro.

    I have the folder view for all my folders to be "Large icons." But I have one folder where I want "Medium icons" view. And I set it on Medium view, but then every few hours or days it goes back to Large icons. And I'm not sure what causes it to happen.

    But what causes it to happen doesn't matter. There has to be a way to make it fixed, set, no change, stay the way I set you forever. Some registry edit or some 3rd party program or some method has to exist.

    I did google for it, trying many different keyword combinations, but it seems google is full of results showing you how to set the default view for all folders. I know how to do that, but that's not what I need. I need to be able to set a default view for 1 folder that is different than my default view for all my other folders. And I also need this to be Permanent, not to change every few hours or days or after a restart.

    I don't really care how deep into windows I have to go to do it. Registry edits, whatever it takes. I would even be willing to install a 3rd party program (as long as it's free) if I have to, as long as I get this fixed.

    Any ideas how I can do this?

    Thank you How to set custom folder view for 1 folder :)

  3. Custom Folder view for new folders registery hack ?

    I swear i saw this somewhere

    It's not what you think, tools > folder options > view.
    That's for existing folders only , i need to change the default view setting for when you create a new folder !

    I already applied the Win7 Full Row Mod
