to change icon size or button size,right click on the buttons choose customize and select small icon in icon options....thats if your using xp...not sure how it is with other window ver. and if this indeed is what you want or talking about.

Set the view how you like it in any folder, then click Tools -> Folder Options... open the "View" tab, and click "Apply to All Folders". That should do the trick
