Make Subfolders View Same as Folder View

  dav_35 11:27 20 Sep 04

I have a large collection of clipart in 500 subfolders under a main folder called Clipart.

Is there a quick way of making all these sub folders the same view i.e. Thumbnails in Windows Explorer (Classical View). OS is Windows XP Pro SR1

You may find something in Tools/Folder Options.

Just to elaborate on watchful's answer. Set your folder to thumbnail view then go to Tools, Folder Options, View tab, and click the button marked "Apply to All Folders".

Thanks Eric 10. I perhaps did not explain myself very well. I only wanted the subfolders under the clip art folder to be changed to thumb nails not all the folders on this drive. David

If you open your Clipart folder to show all your sub-folders then go to Edit and choose, Select all, then go to View and choose thumbnails for instance, then all the folders will change together.
Hope this helps.

Windows can only remember 200 local folders at a time - so its to the registry ;)

Many thanks Sethhanie and watchful using a combination of your suggestions turned out to be successful.
Cheers David
