Part 1: For the main all documents view, I have only folders which show the item child count. That is how I want it, but then, when I click into the folder which only has documents in it, I would like to not see the item child count column because it is only documents, so obviously the item child count is zero.

Part 2: I would also like to be able to change the columns being shown once I click into the folder. For example, when just looking at all folders, I would like to be able to show just the item child count column, but then when I click into the folder which shows only documents, I would like to see all of my normal columns that I have all of my information in in my other views.

Please help! Thank you!

Out of the box, this is how SharePoint works.

Are you comfortable with JavaScript?
If so you can use Client Side Rendering (CSR) to rewrite the Views anyway you want
