    Default Folder View


    I want to Set a default Folder View for all folders.

    I get the instruction:
    1. Open File Explorer by using key combination Windows Key + E and navigate to the folder you want to use as a source for view layout setting.

    Where is that folder?

    I don't care if they are General Items, Documents, Pictures, Music or Videos.

    I want than all to be the same, Details View.

    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.

    Default Folder View

    View>list folder option doesn't stick to all folders


    In a folder, when I do View>list and then in Options apply that to all folders, it often doesn't stick, i.e some sub folders under that folder show the details view. Any suggestions?

    In fact it looks like all new folders are defaulting to details view.
