    Thank you for the detailed response. To change the search result's view from content to list, we suggest following the steps below:

    • Open the File Explorer and try to search for files.
    • In the toolbar, open the View tab and click List
      to change the view.
    • Once changed, close the File Explorer.
    • Open the File Explorer again and try to search to see if the setting has been retained.

    search results - cannot save view settings

    Hi, what I see is that if I pick a folder I've not searched before, then the search view (changes) to Content.

    For a folder I've searched before, that's not what I find. If I launch file explorer, view a folder as "Details", and search for e.g. *.txt, the Search view is "Details".

    Certainly if I then keep viewing the folder, changing the view, it is not necessarily the case that the search view is the same as the folder view.

    I do find this is the same:

    If you wish to take this up with MS, I suggest the Feedback Hub app, or MS's technet site, for example.

  4. search results to be in DETAILS view

    How do I change the default view for Windows 10 File Explorer search results?

    After visiting several Windows 10 'Help' forums, I managed to fix the problem without help in any forum, by experimentation:

    • Open Windows Explorer and write anything in the search box and hit enter (the search results are in Content view)
    • Manually set the search results in view format that you want (using right-click, View ―> Layout options, or whatever)
    • Click on the View tab and select Options on the far right and click on the Change folder and search options
    • Select the Search tab and add any option (say, Include compressed files) and click on Apply
    • Close Options panel, close Windows Explorer and reopen. Repeat step 1 and voil , the view format of your search results is back the way you like it. You can repeat steps 3 and 4 to undo the change you made to the Search options.
    Now, I haven't rebooted, but if it doesn't stick after a reboot, I'll come back for a slice of humble pie.
