is there a way to apply the same exact settings you have in a single folder to another, and many more?
in one folder, i have it set to detail view, with details that i have chosen, in the order i want, with the width colums i like.
is there a way to apply this exact setup to other folders, not always subfolders ??

What type of setting are you trying to apply.

To answer your question is is possible Probably yes by creating a script.

i want to apply the same settings for more than one folder, all holding similar audio files.
working with several folders at a time, id like a bit of consistency.
in psuedocode format, this is what im talking about.

view setting = detail
details to show = file name, artist, title, album, year.
column1 = file name
column2 = artist
column3 = title
column4 = album
column5 = year
column1width = 20
column2width = 20
column3width = 20
column4width = 10

i know nothing about scripts, but i'd be willing to try it.
it sounds simple enought to write a script that sets folders i apply it to with these settings.
i've got a bit of programming background, if someone can point me in the right direction.

Is this the actual filename itself that you are trying to change. Or the ID3 tags.

this has nothing to do with changing the files, or the id3 tags.
i work with 5 different folders, all holding mp3 files.
i want each folder to be set to detail view, with the columns i want, at the width i want.
each folder having those same settings.

i can set the detail view on each of them, with the columns i want, and the width i want.
(though i can set the width to match exactly in each folder, id like to).
one major problem i have is when i am in another folder, and modify the width of the first column, it effects the width of the first column in the 5 folder i work with too.

this script idea sounds promising, if someone can point me in the right direction.
