  1. File Explorer-How to Remove View Icons in Lower-Right Corner


    File Explorer has two icons that are used for changing the view (file display), located in the lower-right corner. One icon changes the view to Details and the other changes the view to Large Icons.

    However, they constantly interfere with my ability to scroll down to the bottom of the page/list. If I do not release the scroll bar just before reaching the bottom, the scroll/mouse location jumps back up and I have to repeat the scroll-down. Is there anyway to remove those icons? I don't use them and I find them very annoying. It happens all the time.

    View Layout Icons


    In the lower right corner of the File Explorer
    there are two icons that have something to do
    with View Layout: 'Detail' and 'Large Icons'.


    I would like to:
    1. Add the 'List' view because this is the type I
    often use, or:
    2. Replace the 'Large Icon' with 'List'.


    How do I do it?

    To do what you wish, you would have to modify a couple system files, (but I can't remember which ones!) *Redface, risky endeavor though!

    Your alternatives:

    - right click inside the folder, hover on View, choose List

    - with mouse focus inside the folder press Ctrl+Shift+5

    - try "Old/New Explorer" with a menu of all 8 options in the upper right command bar.
