    Adding "list" and even other buttons to the explorer top bottom right


    Hello, as stock, there are "details" and "big icons" view button shortcut on the explorer top bottom right windows. I'd like to either had list, either replace details by it. How can i do that? I'd also like to have such button for showing preview/detail pane.

    Expand File Explorer's Ribbon/View,
    right click on desired entries and "Add to Quick Access Toolbar"

    or:

    right click an empty space within an Explorer window and go to View

    or:

    Alt+P for Preview Pane

    or:

    press and hold Ctrl while spinning mouse wheel.........

    Another alternative is "Old/New Explorer", which replaces the Ribbon with the classic Command Bar and has the Toggle buttons at top right.

    Download:
    OldNewExplorer 1.1.8 - StartIsBack+ - MSFN

    Extract the download, keep the extracted folder in your parent directory,
    Click the .exe as a standalone utility, make your choices and click 'Install' then 'Close'

    (These are my choices, of course; it has a readme file, read it!)

    Hi if you want full flexibility as regards recent files and folders and favourites, you'll need to consider a 3rd party program.
    E.g. Listary or similar.
    This has the advantage of making these available as standard in a wider range of contexts - e.g. open/save dialogues.

    Or use a 3rd party file manager.

    Qttabbar (free) adds tabs to explorer, and recent files and folders, but not I think favourites.
