I prefer to have all my file and folder views in Explorer and My Computer set
to "Detail" with the exception of Control Panel. For Control Panel, I prefer
the "Icon" view.

Is there a way to just have Control Panel open up in the Detail view and not
other file and folders. I have tried the following and none seem to work

a) In folder options, advanced settings, I have checked the "remember each
folder's view settings"
b) Using Tweak UI, I increased the folder customization number to 800

thanks,

Try "Switch to Classic View" at upper left side panel.

My view settings have always been set at "Classic View". Any other thoughts?

thanks,

I prefer this exact same setup on my machine. For some reason when I did
this, I had to change the view 3 times before it stuck. Don't know why...

I would also like my folder views to stick.

I particularly like My Pictures folders to be thumbnails, but for program
folders or document folders this is a bit of overkill. (Details is probably
best here.)

I tick "remember folder settings", but they don't seem to stay
