    Saving Audio/Video files in Downloads folder changes Columns


    Whenever I download and save Audio or Video files to the Downloads folder, the Downloads folder's columns are changed just like from the image attached. Why is this?

    How can I reset my columns in the Downloads folder to default?

    In the folder views settings from Options within Windows Explorer, there is a Reset Folders button, but that does not change the columns back to its default categories.

    I cannot remember what the columns were sorted as. Can someone please post and image of the default categories for the Downloads folder?

    Thanks!
