    Tweaking File Manager Columns in WIN 10



    I find myself too often adding an Attributes column and then moving it to the leftmost column location within File Manager.

    Is it possible to tweak File Manager such that an Attributes column is always included and appears as the leftmost column within File Manager ? I would like to have this tweaked as a default setting, if possible?

    Regards,
    VinceB.

    Once you have set up a specific view to your preference, stay on that modified view
    (at the top of that view) Select View> Options> View Tab> and click "Apply to All Folders"

    Note: This will not change the default view for Documents, Music, Pictures and/or Videos

    Hope this helps,

    regards,

    Actually, it does!!! But, only for Quick Access items
    I've just discovered, if you apply a viewing type to all folders, 'Apply to Folders'/Yes/Apply/OK, it changes to that view for all folders pinned to Quick Access.

    Good find Edwin. I would have never made that discovery because I do not ever use Quick Access.

    Weird thing is, it's gotta be new to this Build, because I could never accomplish that before!

    Thank you, WOT. Got it working now.

    Found that I needed to left-click on View|Options and then select View tab, Apply to Folders, to apply to all folders of this type.
