Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse (I'm just kinky that way).

If I set a folder to show files as thumbnails, then go to another
folder, then come back to that folder, it's set back to the default of
details. I can set ALL folders to a certain view, but how do I tell
Windows that I want THIS folder to show details, but THAT folder to
show Thumbnails?

Go to Tools>folder options> check the box for Remember each folders views.

Hi Tod,

If your folder view settings are not remembered, you may download and apply this edit:

Increase folder view size limit to 8000 (line 2, left column)
