    Hello Gmays, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    By default, the folder views of a folder is remembered for how it was set when last closed from that folder's specific target location.

    If you like, you could use either tutorial below to apply your folder views to other folders to help with this.

    Folder View - "Apply to Folders" in Windows 8

    Folder View - Set a Default for all Folders in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

This is more an annoyance than a problem. I am a long time user of XP and in the past year have taken the plunge into 8. Whenever I delete a folder in XP, if that folder is open in an explorer window, the window automatically closes. When I delete a folder that has a window open in 8, the window...
