How do I get the folder settings to persist, using Lion?

I prefer seeing folders sorted "By Kind" and want that to be the case each time I open finder.

Can I do this?


Thanks.

Go to a folder in Finder - Documents for instance.
Right click in the free white space and select "Show View Options".
 At the top of the window that appears, select Sort By: Kind and then click the button "Use as Defaults" at the bottom.

PS

If the "Use as Defaults" button is greyed out, try a different folder.
OS X Lion seems to be a bit picky with some system folders.

I can not find "Use as Defaults", but when I switch it seems to be using the new settings.

Thanks!
