    How to Apply a Folder's View to All Folders of Same Template Type in Windows 10


    While browsing folders in File Explorer, you can apply the view settings of the current folder to all folders on your PC that are optimized for the same folder template type.

    For example, the Pictures folder opened from This PC is Medium icons, you can apply the Medium icons view to every folder that's optimized for pictures.

    This tutorial will show you how to use 'Apply to Folders' to apply a folder's view to all folders optimized with the same folder template for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. In File Explorer, open the folder (ex: Pictures) that you want to apply to folders optimized of the same template type.

    2. Customize this folder's group by view to how you like.

    3. When finished, open Folder Options from within this same folder. (see screenshot below)

    4. In Folder Options, click/tap on the View tab, and click/tap on Apply to Folders. (see screenshot below)

    *note If you opened File Explorer Options (aka: Folder Options) from the Control Panel instead, Apply to Folders will be grayed out.

    *note If you have This PC or a library open, Apply to Folders will be grayed out.

    Change Folder View Layout in Windows 10


    "uhm that method does not work. i want to set folder view as List as default instead Details for all folders"
    Did you download and run Brink's .bat file in Step 1 ? Lacking that, look at the screens in post 3. In Step 5 'folders of this type' defaults to each of the Windows templates for Pictures, Music, etc. If you want ALL folders to have the same List view, r-click any folder in each of the 5 folders under This PC (Desktop does not apply) and hit 'Customize this folder'. Set to 'Optimize this folder for General Items". Then follow the screen in post 3 using List instead of Details in Step 1 and you should be good to go.

    It's not what you think, tools > folder options > view.
