how do I change the "folder view" so it will apply to all my software...
right now when I open a file in Photoshop or any other program I get "list"
and I want thumbnails. If I change it to thumbnails when I open the folder,
it does change, but when I close the folder and re-open it it is back to
"list"

Open any folder. Click on tools/folder options/view. Check "remember each
folder's view settings".

Open Windows Explorer>View>Select Thumbnails
ClickTools>Folder Options>Apply to all folders, click Apply and OK
You will be limited to 400 folders by default for this setting.
If you want all files and folders to increase this setting, go here:
Folders View (increase from 400 to 8000)
