    I saved the File Explorer view but it isn't applied to all folders. I have Windows 11 22H2 installed.

    Maybe it's normal for Quick Access folders to not have the previously saved File Explorer view from a non-Quick Access location since they never have the same, and even if I separately change one of the Quick Access folders File Explorer view and apply it, some of the other Quick Access folders don't have it, so, many Quick Access folders must be separately set.

    EDIT: The File Explorer view not being applied to all folders issue also happens between folders in the same non-Quick Access locations.

    The issue you are talking about started with Win10... it has been raised numerous times... but there is no native solution

    if you use the software that i mentioned... you can export your preferred settings to a backup file... and then run the software and import the backup if and when needed

    That program shouldn't be needed if what I did worked fine and I was told it was a bug and normal behavior.

    I just noticed Windows 11 sometimes is slow changing the timestamp in "Modified" after making changes to files and saving.

    Thank you very much. This has been annoying me for a long time, especially with music files. I had always thought it was my fault. Works perfectly for me , Win 11 Pro.
