New folder view settings...

By mrrous ·

On a Windows XP based computer, Windows Explorer view selected as Details, and Under Folder Options, I selected "Apply to All Folder".
I created a new folder on the desktop, and I want to display the content of this folder, only this folder, by Icons.

Each time, after invariable period of time, view are reset to Details, like Windows Explorer default settings. Is this behavior is normal, "by design", or we can fix it?

The content of this new folder are local applications shortcuts, like Word, Excel, Outlook.

Is this what you did?
Set your file folder view to Details. Do so by selecting the View drop-down menu and then Details. The default view shows the Name, Size, Type, and Date Modified fields. You can add others.
Right-click anywhere on the column/fields header (where it says Name, Size, and so on).
A list will appear with all the field options for the folder view.
You can add and remove columns by clicking on any of them (those that are set to appear will have a check next to them).
You can change only one field at a time.
For more control, click on More... at the bottom of the list.
A Choose Details dialogue box will appear.
Select and deselect the fields you want by clicking on the check boxes (or use the Show and Hide buttons on the right side of the box).
You can even use this dialogue box to change the column viewing order.
To do so, click on the name of the column and then click the Move Up or Move Down button.
When you're all finished, click OK.
