    How do I set a default view in File Explorer?


    I want 'List', not 'Details'.

    I could keep it at 'List' view in Windows 7, but I don't see a setting for that option any more?

    Also, I downloaded a program called Explorer Plus Plus, which I love. Is there any way in Windows 10 to make IT my default Folder opener?

    Thx.

    Hello Lee,

    I noticed you have your thread marked as solved, but in case it's not or someone else wants a solution, you could use the same method in the tutorial below to set a default folder view for all folders.
