Restore a folder’s view options to default settings

I have most of my folders set to open with the defaults I’ve set for icon size, view columns, etc.; plus a few folders which have their own customized settings. In Tiger and earlier, there was a button on the View Options panel to restore a customized folder to the default view, but we lost this with Leopard. 

To restore a folder to the default view settings in Leopard, open the View Options panel (Command-J, or View » Show View Options) then hold down the Option key. With the Option key down, the ‘Use as Defaults’ button will change to ‘Restore to Defaults.’

    in view, command J doesn’t work and I don’t have the option of “show view option” I am using a Mac Book Pro.
    Help….I did not change any setting in my mail but today all of a sudden my inbox changed and I now have to double click every e mail to see the content instead of having the screen divided in two as per default. What else can I try?
