    Windows 10 does not save a folder view that doesn't match default

    I want to be able to set the folder view option on any folder, regardless of type (such a silly option) and have Windows 10 remember that view option when I open the folder again. I do not want to buy a third party utility. I have spent enough money with Microsoft over the years that I want them to provide the solution. Has anyone figured out a way to have Windows 10 save view options on an individual folder?
