    Is a 'Global' folder view setting possible, changing all at once ?

    I work with lots of libraries (around 30) and each is linked to many folders. When installing Windows and importing files I find that the default view is 'Details' but I prefer 'Large Icons'. This involves clicking and opening every folder in turn and manually changing the view setting for each.

    Is there a way to do it globally ?

    I do believe I do mean that :) Just tried it and that seems to do the job nicely. Yay. I guess I just don't play around enough from the standard settings and look for many of the features.

    Thanks ever so much.
