    Hello Sachin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If this is in a library and not a folder, then all added folders will share the same folder view in the library.

    You might see if resetting all folder views back to default may help.

    Is this for in a library and not a folder? (ex: Documents library vs "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents" folder)

    All added folders will share the same folder view in a library.

    By default folders remember there view settings as they were when the folder was last closed, and per location that they were opened from. By chance, are you opening this folder from different locations for why the views are all different?

    As a test, set the folder how you like, close it, then open the folder from the same location to see if it is the same as last closed.
