    Glitch? My folders default to the "details" view everytime.

    So I go to my Music folder & want to view my files in the "list" view options.
    I leave, but & when I go back to my Music folder, it's back to the "detail" view option.

    This happens every time! I select the "list" or the "icon" view arrange option & it ALWAYS resets to the "detail" after I leave the folder & get back to it.

    Before the update, if I leave the view option as List or Icon or tile, it was left like that even after I revisit the same folder. Not anymore.

    How can I fix this, or is this is a glitch.

    the explorer view being lost like this is a problem going back through several generations of Windows.

    There's a long long thread somewhere on this forum which was active some month back.
