    Changing DEFAULT of ICON to DETAILS in Windows 10 Explorer


    I REALLY dislike ICONS in WINDOWS EXPLORER. They tell you nothing about the FILES except a name and a standard ICON picture AND take up most of the window.

    I prefer VIEW/DETAILS on ALL the windows in Windows Explorer.

    When my OS crashed, I had to start all over again and it appears, Microsoft Windows 10 makes ICONS the default on everything. The Internet has ot helped at all.

    Does anyone know how to change all the defaults of Windows 10 Explorer to DETAILS?

    Edition Windows 10 Home
    Version 20H2
    Installed on ‎8/‎26/‎2021

    Joe,

    See
    Change the Layout View of a Folder - TenForumsTutorials
    Apply a Folder's View to All Folders of Same Template Type- TenForumsTutorials
    and have a look at the Related tutorials list at the end of each one.

    All the best,
    Denis



    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month.
    - By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial lists are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    You can search TenForums using the search box in the top-right corner of all TenForums webpages or using Advanced Search - TenForums
    - You can also search TenForums threads in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    - [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]
