    This fix works, but only temporarily.  Upon reboot I have to run the fix again as all my folders reverted to the standard detail view.  I set my main desktop folders for icon view but this setting no longer sticks after reboot.

    It is an explorer setting problem, fix these two keys.

    Change this setting also to NoSaveSettings value to "0"

    I can't wait to see if this fix works – haven't tried it yet.  I have thousands of music files on my external hard drive, and I'm so tired of having their folders default to "pictures" instead of "music."  Hopefully this will settle that problem.
