    Folders files keep changing back to default


    Hello, I have recently undertaken to get my pictures folder all sorted out and I have got a couple of thousand pictures there. I have been trying to make individual folders within my folder in categories so that I can sort things.

    The problem is that in each of these folders I have to keep clicking on "View" and then "Extra Large" over and over again. Isn't it supposed to stay like I put it without me having to re-tell it over and over? It keeps going back to the default size of the pictures.

    It is quite frustrating and tiring to have to keep on re-setting the picture sizes for the hundredth time.

    Go to C:\users\(your user name) and right click on the parent folder, say Pictures, and go to properties. Now click the customize tab. Now set the "Optimize this folder for" option to what you want and make sure to check the box for "Also apply this template to all subfolders" If you optimize for "Pictures" you should get large icons as the view. If you don't get what you want just go back and change it to something else.
