    ICON default views in only specific folders

    I have many folders that are Adobe Ill, Adobe Photoshop and Flexi with big files. I want to change the default view for my pictures folder including its sub folders, but not every folder because it slows it way down trying to come up with a icon for these big files. Not sure if that makes sense. Any suggestions? Thank you, Holly

    I use the following reg file to set all folders to display items as general which makes every folder display files in detailed view. I do this for similar reasons to you in that some folders with lots of media crawl to a halt. I don't think Windows does a very good job at "detecting" the contents either as just a couple of videos and it decides to set the folder to "Videos" which is very frustrating. Anyway hope this helps, if not I am if you Google around for the reg key it uses you can work out a way to get it how you want.
