You can change the folder view settings in Windows 11 to what you want for each separate folder.

View settings for a folder include the template, column width, Group by, Sort by, and layout view.

If you like, you can apply the view settings of a folder to all folders of the same template type all at once without needing to manually apply one by one.

This tutorial will show you how to apply view settings of a folder to all folders of the same template type for your account in Windows 11.


Here's How:

1 Open File Explorer (Win+E).

2 Open a folder using a template (ex: "General items") type you want to apply its view settings to all folders of the same same type.

3 Customize this folder's column width, Group by, Sort by, and layout view settings to how you want.

4 Click/tap on the See more (3 dots) button on the command bar, and click/tap on Options. (see screenshot below)
