Windows 10: Cannot set file explorer file view
Cannot set file explorer file view
For some reason my win 10 (64 b) install always shows images in file view instead of Details.
When I try to apply the details setting to all folders, that selection is always grayed out.
Can someone help?
Are you trying to change this using File Explorer Options in the Control Panel or are you opening File Explorer/File/change folder and search options? Because when I use the 2nd option I can make changes, but if I go through Control Panel I cannot.
Thanks for the quick response.
When I use the 1st option the "Apply to folders" is not grayed out but it doesn't work. When I set to" details" for all folders, the next folder I open shows images again.
With the 2nd option, it's grayed out.
In File Explorer, go to the toolbar to View/Details
That works only for one folder. As soon as I open the next one, it's images again.
You have to do it for each folder.
For Pete's sake, I have hundreds of folders.
What is that "Apply to all folders" for if not for that?

I want File Explore to show all files in list view.
Don't know what I did (or did not), however my file explorer view changed: before I had my drives, downloads, and recent folders at the most left side, and to the right I had the content of each item, e.g. folder or drive.
Now I have...
In W7 I could refresh the file list after deleting files using the view menu and the refresh option.
W10 does not remove deleted files from view at once nor does it have a way of doing it manually that I can find.
I can't believe it no longer...
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...
