    Hello Steven,

    This will not affect window size.

    It'll only affect the view of all folders including This PC.

    How do I reset the window sizes back to default?

    Usually File Explorer will open to the same size as last closed.

    Are you able to manually resize the window by dragging its borders to the size you want?

    Yes and I would like it back to default without re installing, is it possible?

    Default is what you make it.

    Drag the borders to the size you want, move the window to the position you want on the screen, and close it.

    The next time you open File Explorer, it should open the same.

    I can confirm using option 1 the size of the folders went back to default ! I tested..I stretched it large..used option 1 and it went back to default size of window

    Like Try3 in post #8, I found I could not change the folder view on this 1903 PC, whereas on another much older installation, also 1903 now, I could. Running this on the first one resolved that problem.
