    Customize Many (Not All) Folders' View Settings

    Hi, I have many folders that I want to set a specific custom setting for.

    I have about 100 folders (well, specifically, saved search files within File Explorer, that I want to open showing the results as View > Details, and only the details on top of Name & Date Modified. Also, the Name detail should be set at 440 pixels, and the Date Modified detail set to 160 pixels.

    Is there an easy way to do this rather than doing it manually for each one?

    Not sure about this- just a thought in passing, most probably based on partial misunderstanding(!)- could you put them all into the same library folder and apply the same view to all?

    One thing not supported in Windows, unfortunately, is being able to create your own folder template. (Unless something's changed more recently...)
