    Folder View

    I have a folder of audio files containing over 2,000 sub folders. I want all the sub folders, but not the main folder, to display tiles, but have forgotten how to do this, and would appreciate someone reminding me.

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy

    At the right top corner of Windows Explorer:


    Is that what you mean?

    SpywareDr,

    I don't see the dropdown list you show. A screenshot showing what I see when I open the list of subfolders I was referring to is attached. At present to see Tiles in the subfolders I have to set the view to Tiles separately for each subfolder, and you will appreciate that this is too time consuming when there are over 2,600 subfolders.

    If you can clarify how to set the view to Tiles globally for the subfolders I would be very grateful.

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy

    Roy, This thread is in the Win 7 Forum. I believe the method shown by SpywareDr is in a previous version of File Explorer than you have in Win 8.

    I believe if you look in the View Tab you will see Tiles as an option.

    Ted, I do have Tiles as an option in the View tab, but cannot set the view for all the subfolders to Tiles globally, and it is a pain having to do it for each individual subfolder.

    In that case you may have to go to CP>Folder options and set it for all folders of that type, provided they are indeed all similar type folders. Then set the view you want for the top folder without applying to all folders.

    F.U.N.downtown, thanks-I was unable to do it from CP>Folder options, but was able to do it from one of the subfolders that had previously been set to view Tiles, and was then able to reset the top folder view to Details without changing the Tiles view of the subfolders. I used this procedure before I recently reinstalled Windows 7, but forgot how I did it until your post jogged my memory.

    Regards,
    Roy
