No, each directory has its own permissions. You would have to do it for each specific directory.

Default Re: directory

yes and yet no...

the easiest way to search for things by extension is to use the windows search...

however, if you have the indexing services switched on it is possible to integrate a program with the indexing features, (which should index just about every file on the machine (I don't know how this works though).
