    File Explorer, different results for search then all folders set for


    I have set all folders and subsfolders to view DETAILS - no matter what I do and I have spend three days searching for the answer - I cannot get a search result in Win 10 File explorer to show anything but the attached view. The search only always comes back with "Content" view when I only want DETAIL view in all viewing of file explorer.

    What am I not getting????

    Hi, I searched the forum for you
    content search view
    as I know this topic has been discussed previously. The forum can be used as a resource.

    See e.g.
    How to change default Folder View of Search Results
    Search layout in Windows Explorer keeps going back to "Content" layout

    You may find more results.
    The most convenient way of posting a screenshot is to use the icon to the left of the video icon above your post 'Insert Image'

    Thank you you for pointing out the other two posts. HOWEVER setting it as you pointed out does NOT work on my macjome. The very next search again, perhaps in a different folder, shows the CONTENT view even though I applied the previous detail view changes to all folders the DETAIL view.

    Is the solution that I will have to go to every single folder on my PC and set it separately and apply it?? That will take days, weeks. I checked on my NAS drive only (which is one of 5 drives on my PC) and it has over 67,000 files in over 1,600 folders (and still calculating).

    Win 10 Pro, 64 bit updated through Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3211320) - file/windows explorer does not work like every single other Win version since Win 95 - and I have used them all with the exception of Win ME.

    Make a shortcut from ms-search: C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{9343812e-1c37-4a49-a12e-4b2d810d956b} and use it as the pilot folder for a your searches. Set the view and you're good to go.
