  2. set default folder view in Windows 10?

    I have now had success!

    My Apply to all Folders was also greyed out.

    Navigated to: This PC>Local Disk(CApply to all folders greyed out :)>Users>(my user's name).

    Clicked the View Tab and under the Panes group chose Details AND under the
    Layout group chose Details. Then all the way to the right hand side of the ribbon (as it is called these days) and chose Options>(or 'Change folder and search options' if you chose the down arrow)>View and whoa
    and behold my greyed out Apply button was no longer greyed out. I clicked 'Apply to Folders' >Apply>OK.

    All is now well. Thank heavens for that!

    Windows 10 file sharing with user permissions using homegroup network on Windows 10.

    Thanks for the reply but...

    I'm trying to be able to share entire directory structures (starting at the top level folder and have it include all files and sub-folders. The share button is greyed out on the folder(s) I'm trying to share... in fact it seems to be greyed out for all folders
    and is only enabled when I select files.

    I do see a few homegroup options (view or view and edit) which I tried.. but those rights only seem to apply to the specific folder, it doesn't apply the rights to sub-folders.
