    Windows 10 folder view options are applying to ALL folders


    So it was my understanding that when you go into view options, and click "Apply to Folders" that it only applies to folders of a that type.

    For me, it seems to be a blanket setting. Am i misunderstanding how its supposed to function?

    I go into my videos folder and set bitrate, length, frame width etc > apply to folders.

    I go into my documents folders, and it now has bitrate, length etc and not what I had set previously.

    The only thing i can think of is either A) im incorrect in how it functions and "apply to folders" is universal or B) that this from winaero is interfering or has a hand in how it functions?

    i was under the impression (based on wording) that it simply stops windows from up and altering what you have set.

    If someone could clarify it would be great Windows 10 folder view options are applying to ALL folders :)

    Windows 7 Folder Options

    In Windows XP, I used to setup one folder the way I liked and go into the Folder Options to make all the rest that style as well. I can't seem to figure out how to do this in Windows 7. I see Folder Options in the control panel, and it has the same feature as XP to apply to all Windows, but since I'm accessing that through the control panel it doesn't work. I imagine I need to access the folder options through the folder that I want to use as a template for the rest. Does anyone know how I can do this in Windows 7?

    Edit: I found out -.- That always seems to happen right after I type up a post asking.

    View>list folder option doesn't stick to all folders


    In a folder, when I do View>list and then in Options apply that to all folders, it often doesn't stick, i.e some sub folders under that folder show the details view. Any suggestions?

    In fact it looks like all new folders are defaulting to details view.
