Why in the hell does Windows change the way I view files and folders in my various master folders???

I like all my files to be displayed as large icons. Why is it that at some point Windows will randomly change every single file and folder to "list/detail" view?
You can change it so ALL folders appear the same.
Once in a folder. Fix it so it is set up the way you like. Large Icons, List, arrange icons by.
So you get it the way you want it.
Go to the tools option in the bar.
click on the view TAB.
Click on the Apply to all folders button.
From that point on, each folder you open should be set up just the way you set that one up.
Hope that helps.
