    How to make list view default for all folders?


    I've tried the "Apply to folders" button in the options menu, but it does not work, newly opened folders still open with "details" view... :/ Is there another way to make "list" view the default setting for all the folders?

    thanks for the help

    Thanks but..


    Thanks for the reply, but I only want FOLDERS I OPEN FOR THE FIRST TIME to be displayed in list view, but I do not want to disturb the view settings for the folders I already optimized, like pictures folders (and its subfolders)...

    I'm afraid that you may have to manually set a new folder to list view when created then.

    Brink is correct
    I'm guessing that you find opening the Ribbon, selecting View then List is a pain, I wanted the same convenience as you but with Tiles view.
    I can only suggest a keyboard shortcut that will work as soon as you open the folder

    CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large
    CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large Icons
    CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons
    CTRL + SHIFT + 4 Small Icons
    CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List
    CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details
    CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles
    CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content

    You can also open the Ribbon then View and right click on any view then select Add gallery to quick access toolbar This will save you having to open the Ribbon every time
