I have folder named "Songs" the basic selection of that folder is "Music (best for audio files and playlist)" from folder right click customize.

that folder contain many other folder in catagoried folder which have mp3 and audio files.

when i open that folder i get details view with details like
Name, Size, Type, Artist, Album Title, Year, Track number, Duration

but i want to customize that for all folder globally.
it means that when I select folder type "Music (best for audio files and playlist)" then it displays

Just to clarify, you want all the subfolders to have the same view as the main Music folder?

Go into your folder called 'Songs' Right click View > Customize this folder, in the drop down box select 'Music Details' and tick the box that says 'Also apply this template to all subfolders' Click Apply and then OK.

Hope this helps.

The problem lies with 'folder templates' now then as none of them are the 'style/layout' that you require, unfortunatly the 'folder templates' are hard coded into shell32.dll, even with resource hacker there isnt really a way of generating your own folder templates that I have come accross as yet.

Unfortunatly from what I can see they wouldnt be able to do what you are looking for..

Reasons:

URL 1: That's only to reset folder settings back to default, unfortunatly not to add a new 'style/layout' its only used incase the customise option is grayed out / not selectable.

URL 2: I currently cant access soft32's forums but I will take a look asap and let you know on that one.

URL 3: Again that wouldnt customise folders from what I can see, thats just talking about User Profiles and where folders reside on either a stand-alone PC or a Server, in the case of that webpage its on a OSX Server.

URL 4: Thats to add a folder link to an area of your PC that the folder doesnt actually exist without using a shortcut for it, kind of like your My Documents folder on your desktop, although its not a shortcut it is actaully a folder link which redirects your explorer to the correct location on your comptuer. Again this wouldnt be able to achieve what you are wanting.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news again :(
