    Default Folder Setting


    I would like most of my folders to open with Details for the view. Then when I want it differently I can change it. It seems like every time I open a new folder or one that has not yet been opened within 10 they all are large icons which provide little information.

    Is there a way to set a one time default for all folders?

    Also is there a way set a default for a folder tree?

    Hello Silvera,

    Yes, you can set a default folder view for all folders, and will still be able to change the view of any folder you like afterwards. The tutorial below can help show you how to. It's the same in Windows 10.

    I read the Related Tutorials and none seem to address how to reset a tree of folders. I collect photos of automobiles (over 300K and +100 subfolders), It would be nice to rest them back to large or extra large icons simply. From reviewing the bat file I see this was a reg edit routine. I am not familiar with register editing. I have done it with very explicit details only.

    O my I think now that I have relooked I think "How to "Apply to Folders" a Custom View to All Folders with Same Template in Windows 8..." is the answer, correct?

    Correct. After you do step 1 in the tutorial I posted above and set the folder view how you like, you would then do step 2 apply it to all other folders.
