Computer Wide Folder Viewing Options

Do you get tired of changing the folder view in windows for every folder that you go into? This tutorial will walk you through making the changes to one folder and applying them to all the folders on the computer. This will also make a;; folder that you create after this, to have these settings without any changes needing to be made. For this tutorial, I am going to create a folder on the desktop to do the settings. So, first we need to create that folder. To do this, we right-click on the desktop, highlight “New”, then click on Folder:
