    Libraries No Longer Displays Folder's View Setting

    It works for me (if I understand you correctly).

    I opened pictures folder and set a view to "list". Applied to all folder of this type and every folder in Pictures is presented in list view.
    In tutorials is detailed view just an example, because this view differs the most for different types.

    It works when viewing an individual folder but it doesn't work for libraries.

    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.
