    File explorer view settings


    I know how to set the view display when browsing folders, but if I use the search facility, the default view is always Content. I would rather the default view for searches, and indeed all views in File Explorer, to be Details.
    How do I change the default?

    :)

  3. View settings on the File Explorer are not retained on Windows 10.

    Hi, thanks for the update.



    Since the issue persists after running System maintenance troubleshooter,
    SFC scan and DISM scan, I suggest you to check if similar behavior is shown on another user profile.



    Create another administrator user account by referring to Set up accounts on Windows
    10 article.



    The corrupted user profile does not function normally such as not launching
    Start menu, Cortana, Search bar, Store and other
    Windows applications. In such cases creating a new profile and checking for the same will help in identifying if the is specific to corrupted user profile or the OS.



    Write to us with the status of the issue for further assistance.
    Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
