You can customize the template that any folder uses so that you can take
advantage of the features in Windows 8’s File Explorer. You do this by using the
Customize tab in folder properties. Follow these steps to specify the template
that should be used for a folder:
1. Navigate to the folder that you want to modify, right-click it, and select
2. Click the Customize tab.
3. Select the template that you want to use by expanding the drop-down
box, as shown in Figure 9-7.

click the Also Apply This Template To All Subfolders box so that your
changes are propagated to all subfolders as well.
