  1. Windows updates resets folder views


    [COLOR=rgba0, 0, 0, 1]Ok I'm still on 1809 its end of life and I need to update. Problem is I'm reluctant because it never retains my folder views, Always groups download folders by date easy enough to remove but scouring through folders and changing them to pictures or videos manually is going to be tiring and the apply to all folders button is not a fix.[/COLOR]


    [COLOR=rgba0, 0, 0, 1]What happens is with the windows update it makes every folder become a general items folder. Whenever going to windows update recommended 1909 or even going straight to 20H2[/COLOR]


    [COLOR=rgba0, 0, 0, 1]Any suggestions/solutions?[/COLOR]

    :)

    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.

    How to Change the Group by View of a Folder in Windows 10 tutorial

    The delay to reply was unrelated to this topic. I was preparing to add a disc drive. The preferred view is working now, and here is the step by step list of what I did, and it includes an additional step at the end. I also rebooted after each step.

    1. Reset all views to default.
    2. Rebooted.
    3. Changed the "My Pc" view to Details and set the "Group By" to [None]. But left everything else at default.
    4. Rebooted.
    5. "My Pc" view retained the selected setting, alphabetically ordered "Details" without grouping.
    6. Switched to Drive C:\, set it to "Details" and changed the column order to "Name, Size Type and Date". Grouping is available but not applied by the default settings.
    7. Rebooted.
    8. "My Pc" lost the settings, reverted to "Tile" and "Group by" was active again.
    9. Reconfigured to "Details" and set the "Group By" to [None].
    10. Rebooted.
    11. "My Pc" view retained the selected settings. Alphabetically ordered "Details" without grouping.
