I had to check my Music folder after reading your post. I changed my
headings about 2 weeks ago, and they are all still showing my custom
selections. On top of that, all the subfolders (about 200) under Music also
have the same custom headings, and I did nothing to change any of them.

KCB:

Thanks for the info. I'm going to play around again with this and see if
I can't achieve the same results you have.

Tim:

I have found a method that worked for me using win 7/64 pro.

Follow this link and it will tell you how to change the template for a
single folder type such as "documents", "music", etc.

I decided to make changes to the "music" template only.

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...l-folders.html

The link mentions saving icon sizes and similar items however it also
worked for me in being able to also save the custom column headers that
I like to see in my music folders.

I'm quite pleased.

Wilby

PS: Stay out of those nasty tuition street riots, we need you here.
