Dear Microsoft, It really shouldn’t be this difficult.
To enable the same view for all Windows 7 folders, you need to set up a particular folder however you like.
In the Windows Explorer “Tools” menu , click “Folder Options”.
In the “View” tab, click the “Apply to Folders” button. Windows will ask if you’re sure about the change (and why wouldn’t you be, if you’re going through the trouble?). Click the “Yes” button, then “OK”.
