Changing File Type Views in Explorer

I have many, many photo and video files separated into many subfolders. I'd like to change all of certain types of files to a different view: all video files to extra large icons, for instance. The trouble is, I don't want to change the icon for the subfolders they're contained in themselves to extra large icons. (I know, it's really nitpicky and particular.)

Is there any way to do a mass change to the view option for all of a certain file type without having to go in and change the view option on hundreds of subfolders individually? (I use Windows 10 Home.) Thanks!

Yeah, this is exactly the thing I'm trying to avoid—having to open and make the change in literally hundreds of folders. I know how to do it that way, but I'm hoping some clever techie knows better.
