only win 7 screws around with the folder views and doesn't respect settings

by Who Am I Really In reply to Windows File View Default

it's a crap feature called "folder discovery" where exploder snoops the files and changes the view based on what it finds

open a folder full of bmp, jpg, png,etc. images and it automatically switches to frign thumbnails
if I want to see thumbnails I'll check out my hands

I've always used details view since the first time I used windows
so I expect when I click "apply to all" it should apply to all forever after
and not change because I copied another file type into any particular folder

if you want the same view in all folders you need to hit the registry with the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell]

save that as a .reg file (I named it: NoDiscovery.reg)
and then select it and hit enter "run" it
restart and all folder views stay the way you set them up
