I am generally loving Vista and have no intention of going back. I keep a few VPCs of older OS'es around, for various reasons, and some of the machines in my firm haven't been updated, mostly single-purposes boxes like a file-and-print server that isn't hurting anyone, or a machine dedicated to running our accounting software. But I won't pretend there haven't been annoyances - there have. And one of them has been opening a folder full of files and getting these weird columns like Date Taken and rating and the like:

Scott Hanselman showed me how to fix it. Do this in the root of C if you like, and apply to all subfolders. I have a "working" folder, with subfolders under it for each client, and I did it there. Aaaah, relief.


ps: Still filing Scott under RD for a little while until the assimilation takes full effect :-)

The information above is lacking one important detail. There is no place on that screen to tell it to apply it all folders.... I can set each individual folder, but no where can you see the preferences for viewing to apply to all folders.

Although there is nothing on the dialog, it applies by default to all the folders under the one you do it to. So if you do it to My Computer you'll take care of everything. You might want to exempt your My Pictures etc, so if you have a folder like "work" or "working" with everything under that, apply these settings to that folder.
