    The non-icon desktop layout options seem to have been removed in 1703

    Thank you @Michael. I have added a note for this in the tutorial.

    how about a .reg or .bat file to restore custom folder view setting after a clean install? after i reinstall windows the first thing i do is reassign my secondary drives/partitions there previous drive letters. in doing this i don't have to change various setting in my backup for various programs like my browsers, winstep, etc.... but where various view settings are concerned it can be weeks before i reset each and every folder. i would rather have click and done on the various view settings so i can open a folder and just do what i open that folder for instead of opening the folder, adjusting the view, and then doing what i opened the folder for. thanks

    Here's another way to change the desktop layout, for any AutoIt users:
    Code:
    #include <GUIListView.au3>
    _GUICtrlListView_SetView(ControlGetHandle('', 'FolderView', 'SysListView321'), 2)
    Put that in an .au3 file in your Startup folder, and it will switch to List view at login.

    You can change the last 2 to a 1 for Details view, or 4 for Tiles.
