Trouble with folder layout (not folder permissions) inheritance

    Vista has more powerful capabilities than XP at specifying folder layout
    (e.g. width in pixels, via View | Choose Details...). However, Tools | Folder
    Options... | View | Apply to Folders does not seem to inherit to certain
    folders. I’m not sure, but it seems that folders that have been migrated from
    XP do not inherit the layout specified on new folders in Vista, even if they
    are below in the hierarchy when the Apply to Folders command is selected.

    Does anyone know of how to get around this, e.g. to force to application of
    the layout to all folders? Is there a command line utility that I can use? I
    understand that CACLS is used for folder permissions. I don’t think this is a
    permissions problem, but perhaps CACLS is relevant.
