    How to enforce "Details" view in Windows File Select Dialog?


    I have customized my views in Windows Explorer as amply described in many places on the web (including here). However, the Windows file selection dialog (used e.g. for opening and saving files) merrily ignores these settings. I would like these dialogs to *always* show the details view. How can I achieve this?

    :)

    File selection lost continuously

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.


    • Are you trying to access detail pane under view tab or right click on the file and select properties and details?

    • What are the steps you have followed to open the details view?
    I would suggest you open the folder which contains PDF files and click on view and check details pane and check if you are able to get the details view.

    Reply us back with the required information. We will be glad to assist you.
