I set the view of a certain folder to Details but when I go back to it later on I find it turned into Tiles. Is there a way to fix the view to Details all the time?

Just that one folder or does it do that with every folder? If just that one, what's the folder name?

All folders that contain subfolders. Even though I arrange the folder and the subfolders to Details, when I come back to them in a few days I find them all switched to Tiles.

✔ Best Answer
It seems like it ought to hold the settings unless you're doing some kind of registry or system restore. Here's some general info on changing the settings but you're probably already familiar with it:

your link took me to a fix tool which I applied and waiting to see how effective it is. Also modifying the registry should work by raising the limit of managed folders into 5000 as advised. I will wait to see if that solves the problem in the long run.
