    Maintain folder view settings in Windows 7

    Ian Vivero

      Here's the scenario. When browsing through my vault I prefer to keep my folder view set to icons to get through the directory hierarchy, then switch to details once in the folder I'm looking for. I find icons are easier to browse through while the details setting allows me to easily find the files I need based on their state. In XP this was no problem as every folder maintained it's settings individually so once I set it the way I wanted it, it was always that way. 7 doesn't seem to do this as the bottom level folders keep switching back to icon view. I have done some searching on this and there appears to be some options to correct this behavior but they involve menu options that simply don't exist in the EPDM window (view - customize folder) which leads me to believe that in this case at least, it's also partially an EPDM issue. Has anyone else run into this and what have you done to correct it? I am running 2010 SP2 (i think, having a minor brainfart and can't remember how to check my current SP level). Machine is windows 7 x64.

          Hello Ian


          Actually you're right.

          Folder settings are not stored inside the local view.

          Beyond the local view it works ok.

          I have noticed one more think - that the option "Apply to All Folders"in view tab is enabled only in the root folder of the vault.


          What next only first column is selectable and this also causes some inconvenience while browsing local vault view.


          so far not found a way to get around this issue
