    Okay, I have my Audio Files in a folder Called Mp3s, Which contains subfolders of genres which then contains subfolders of artists/albums etc. Now, For My Computer I have veiw settings to Detail / Groups.

    For the rest of the computer I have View Settings to List. However for the specific D:/MP3 Folder I would like to Have Details and my own columns. How do I set it so that I can have all my folders in D:/MP3 Are in Detail + my colums view without Overwriting the defualt all use list..?

    When you are in the directories set the view the way you want it, Windows should remember the settings and keep them for you till you use the directories again.

    yes but you see in my mp3 folder I have about another 400 folders. So if there is anyway I can make them all appear like that for only those 400 folders that would be awsome, Cuz manually seems a tad tedious

    Don't think it's possible really. it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other. You can set your computer to have all folders show detail or list, then change the rest.

    Try right clicking the folder and select the customize tab, you can set folder template to Music (Best for audio files and playlists) and then put a check in Also apply this template to all subfolders and click ok. While this selected the details view for the parent folder, the subfolders remained the same for me. Maybe it will work for you, couldn't hurt to try.

    Under folder options there is a "Remember each folder's settings" option, check that, then each folder should have it's settings remembered. Personally, this is an area of windows that i've tried and tried many times to get it to work, and it just doesnt want to.
