"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this:

Configure the folder the way you want it.
Press Alt to reveal the hidden menu
Tools, Folder Options
View Tab
Apply To Folders

This should apply that view to all folders with the same type of contents (videos, music, pictures, generic files)

Repeat the procedure for each type of folder you want to standardize.  Do not use a library view to configure this view; open the actual "My Music" folder or "My Documents".

Try this:

Set up a folder with the view you want (which seems to be Details and Show the preview pane)
Tools
Folder Options
View
Apply to Folders

Folder views
Notice the comment circled, "...folders of this type". So you may need to do this for multiple types of folders. Regards, Joe
