  1. Windows 10 File Explorer details view


    I want Windows 10 File Explorer to always show detail view, without regard to the file types. I want the default view, for any and all drives (local, thumb drives, USB drives, DVDs, etc), to be detail view. No matter what type file, the view should always be details, even for photos. If I had a choice, I'd remove or disable all the other views.


    I've looked and tried workaround without success. I've changed the default in View > Layout but it still shows tiles or icons when I connect a USB drive/thumb drive, etc.


    Alternately, is there a way to modify the "templates" for the included views so that I can set them to match details?


    Thanks for your time and assistance,


    Chris

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
