Default Vista folder view options

hi, i know youve answered this before, but your solutions have not worked for me, so im hoping for a little more help.

basically, i am running windows vista home premium edition, and i want it so that my default view for all icons, folders and files etc. is the the tile view.

how can i set it so that all files and folders are shown like this by default. i have been into the folder options in control panel and it hasnt helped, i set it to remember each folders view options and then gone through every file to set it how i want it, but after i restart they simply return to the other types such as thumbnail.

any help much appreciated,
jared james

go into windows explorer and navigate to a certain folder and make the icons the way you want them then hit "ALT" and then go to Tools > Folder Options and go to the "View" tab and hit "Apply to all folders"

Default Re: Vista folder view options

You wont be able to click tools since you dont see it. So you will have to do a Alt+F to bring up the file menu. Or you can click the Organize button and get the folder options under there.
