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.
