    Can I change the default view?


    I finally decided to change from a Windows 7 style start menu about a year ago and learn the 'new' style start menu. I realized it wasn't a big leap and actually have come to like it.


    I just installed windows 10 ver 2004 build 19041.508. Now my start menu looks like a variation of the old menu I used to use.


    On the top left, there is Start Menu windows that, when depressed, reverts back to the menu I want to use.


    Does anyone know how to save the full menu as default?


    Thanks.

    :)
     

  2. Windows 10 Change default on file view

    Sorry but following the steps that you describe applied to the documents folder did not appear to change the views from details to list in any subfolders which were already set to 'Detail'.

    Nor did this change of default view appear with addition of New folder or a subfolder of New folder.
