Wrong File Types View in Vista Explorer Folders
I hope this is considered a bug (or at least an issue) and will be addressed in Vista SP1. I'm growing increasingly frustrated with Vista when Explorer decides that one of my many thousands of folders contains pictures and videos and surely I must want to rate them and tag them and see what date they were taken on. Don't get me wrong, the Folder Templates are lovely. I just don't like the assumptions that are being made.
This folder above is my Apple Newton Software Archive, from unna. Note the Explorer Columns like "Date Taken" and "Rating."
Right click in the whitespace of Explorer and click "Customize This Folder..." You can also click Organize|Properties from the menu if you like.
From the Properties Dialog that appears, click the first Dropdown that likely says "Pictures and Videos" and select "All Items." You may want to click "Also apply this template to all subfolders.
Personally, I visited c:\users on my Vista machine and applied the All Items view to every folder from there down.
This is probably my number one beef with Explorer right now.
