    [SOLVED] Name, Size, Date, Dimensions, Type. Can I?


    I want all my folders to ever always open up exactly thus. I am tired of random possibilities. How do I lock EVERY folder on my Desktop PC in Windows 10 to always open up in Details View > Name Size Date Dimensions Type > Previews Pane. At the very least I never want to see that useless "Tags" ever ever ever again.

    PS: I don't know if it matters but all my folders will have pictures and text documents both. No folder is just a pic only or text only.

    Click on Options on the ribbon to the right as in your screenshot, and select change folder options to bring up the Options dialog, select the view tab then apply to folders then click OK

    That's it.

    In addition to what Fafhrd suggests, you may want to set default view to all folders type.

    See the tutorials from Blink: folder-view-set-default-all-folders-windows

    "PS: I don't know if it matters but all my folders will have pictures and text documents both. No folder is just a pic only or text only."

    The reason your preferences don't stick is that the default folder view is different for each type of folder, ie; Documents, Music, Pictures, etc. Select a folder under This PC. O
    nce you've got the Details headers that you want, r-click/'Customize this folder'/Optimize this folder for'; select, say General items, since you want the same for all folders (don't forget to check 'apply to subfolders, if you want). Follow the screenshots here and AFTER you click Apply then OK, go to the Folder View settings suggestion shown in post 2 and your setting will stick. Repeat for all primary folders listed under This PC and you'll be good to go (will not apply to Desktop though). You can customize every type, ie; I have almost the same as yours for Pictures but for my Videos folder I have Length added and for Music, the Artist and Track #, for instance. Good Luck
