Folders view bug

    Is there any way to persuade Windows 7 to remember how I want to view
    folders and files?

    I have, for example, folder A which holds a mixture of file types and
    folder B, which holds a mixture of file types and folder C which holds a
    mixture of file types. All folders are set to 'List' view. I go into
    folder C and change the view to 'Extra large icons' as some of the files
    in there are images. I click B in the address bar to go back to B and
    the view there is no longer 'List' but 'Extra large icons'. I click A in
    the address bar and the view in A is now 'Extra large icons'.

    I only wanted to change the view in C but it seems that all folder views
    have changed.

    Right-click on the folder you want to change and pick Properties. Go to the
    Customize tab and from the drop down menu, pick the folder type you want it
    to be, say Pictures. Then when you set it to show Extra Large Icons, that
    folder only should be that way when next you open Explorer.
