    Hello yahanna,

    If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to set that view to be the default for all folders. The "General items" folder template uses details view by default.

    This useful Brink tutorial will also allow you to customize columns, depending on type of file; eg- for Music files, see artist, album name, etc -
