Default Views for a Library SharePoint

I have a Form Library (infopath) on a SharePoint, within that form library I have several folders which denote the various departments within the organization.

I would like that when the form library is opened that the default view be just Type and Name because it is only a folder listing, then when you click the individual folders(departments) the default view be a customized view I have made which the columns draw info from the submitted form.

At the current I can't get the default view to be different within the library and then the individual folders in the library.
It is important that I have individual folders because I will need to set permissions on users which only enable them to view their own folder.

A simple answer is to create a separate form library for each department, rather than using folders.

I realize that.... but that just seems silly for my application.

I've never found another way of doing this, it seems to be a design feature.  There is a good discussion about it here:

which may give you some more pointers.

Sorry I couldn't help more.
