    Icon View Issue

    Hello all,

    I have 2 computers and both have windows 10 installed.
    But the icons on the new computer look very strange.
    Because when I select icon views as "list view", "detailed view" and "small icons",
    I encounter small versions of large icons.
    Small appearances in the icons are not detected.
    Actually i don't know how to tell. Just look at the screenshots I took on two computers.

    How is the solution to this problem?

  2. Files & Folders View as medium or large Icons

    To assist you better, we would suggest that you try to follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Once you are viewing a folder, right click an empty space within the File Explorer window and select View from the dialogue menu, then choose Large or any icon you wanted to use. Alternatively, you can use the following shortcut keys on the keyboard to
      change your View settings:
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large icons
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons

    • CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content
    3. Once you have the view set, you can make it the default view for

    every folder.

    4. Click Apply, then click OK.
