Need help on configuring the 'Folder View' option in Windows 7. See screenshot.

Follow screen shot example. I want the ability to view a sub folder (My Pictures & Videos) in 'Large Icon' view, and make it stay saved in that view. I have my 'My Documents' folder set to details view. 'My Pictures & Videos' is a sub folder with 'My Documents' folder. So each time I click out of the subfolder, it switches it back to detail view, and will never stay saved in 'Large Icon view'. I tried to adjust the settings, but the option in 'Folder views' are grayed out. I am a member of the local admins group on this Windows 7 box. Please help.

I also use large icons viwe  in explorer on the folders, and after the folder and sub-folders one by one all set to the large icons view, those folders will remember that view which you are set, even I restart PC it also can remember, so not sure what problem you get, attached 2 files are the folder options on my Windows 7. folder options 1 folder options 2
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

To apply the current view settings (such as List, Details, or Large Icons) to all folders on your computer that are the same type as the folder you currently have open. (Documents and Music Details are examples of folder types.)
In the currently open folder, click Organize in the toolbar, and then click Folder and Search Options.

Do this: In Folder Options, click the View tab, and then click Apply to Folders. (To switch these folders back to their default settings, click Reset Folders.)
