    Registry location for: "Optimize this folder for" templates

    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone knew where the regedit location was for these default templates? I want to change the Picture template from Large to Extra Large.

    Basically I know of three ways to change folder views:
    • Manually using the view quickbar - which is tedious.
    • Folder Properties > Customize > "Optimize this Folder for" - which gives you greater control and only changes the current folder and its subfolders (which is what I want).
    • Folder Options > View > "Apply to Folders" - which changes ALL folders on your computer to the current folder settings, which is a rather intrusive option (not at all what I want).

    The Optimize setting and it's templates are great - I just want to find ways to tweak them or perhaps make my own templates for this feature? Or perhaps there is a 3rd party folder software that can do what I want. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello jkchao297, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, the "Apply to Folders" method will apply changes to all folders of only the same template type (ex: "Picture").

    Thank you, I guess this will work. I didn't know I had to Combine the two options. I think previously I just used Apply to Folders before doing the Template and it just made everything in my PC a large picture which was no beuno.
