Issue with Folder view options in Windows 7

Asked By 15 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

I am using Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wit Windows 7 pre-installed in it.

It is working fine, but I have one problem recently. I have several folders with files, photos, videos, music, etc., I would like to set the folder options differently for each folder. For example, for the folder where I have documents I want to set the folder view options to Details so that it will show all details and in the folder where I have photos I want to put view option to Thumbnails and so on. But, the issue is that when I change the view options for a particular folder, it is propagating that to all other folders as well. So, I am not able to achieve my need.

Is it possible in Windows 7 or not? If possible, How can I make it work? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

Hello Shirley,

Follow this, In your folder go to organize in the Toolbar and then click to "Folder and Search Options".

Next, Go to the view TAB and click on "Reset Folders" option. This will reset any old settings made to Folders. Then you set view option to whatever you want and it shouldn't affect other folders.

Below is how this window looks in Windows 7.
