    Issue with Folder View Setting


    Hello All,


    I have set the Folder View settings for my Win10 many times.

    But every time I restart the machine the settings were lost.

    Looks so strange.

    Please share your ideas to resolve.


    Thanks,

    Kannan

    :)

    Folder view issue


    I want my folders (and subfolders) to stay in List view but they keep changing to Details view.

    I have tried View>Options>Apply to Folders many times but it doesn't stick.

    Any suggestions?

    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.
