    After unzipping a ZIP file of pics is there a way to force the folder to use the "general item" folder type and use the list view rather then the"picture" type and the thumbnail view other then manually changing it?

    Thanks

    If we're talking about something automatic then I guess the answer is no.
    That is unless you modify the "pictures template" one of the five templates that windows uses as a means of displaying folder contents. And that of course is a global setting and would not just affect the one single folder.
    Give this a read and see if it might help in any way.... http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16694/customize-the-five-windows-folder-templates/
