    Question about Folder views


    Hey! I have a question about folder views. Is there a way to set multiple folders (as well as the files inside those folders) to a certain view (like tiles, for instance)? I've set a bunch of folders to tiles view but wanted the files inside to be tiles view as well (they were in "details" views it seems).

    EDIT: Is there a solution or do I need a folder/file arranging software?

    Hello Benny, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to set how you want a folder view for a specific folder template, then apply it to all folders that use the same folder template.

    Hope this helps,
