    Hello Raj, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to apply it to all folders.

    Set Default Folder View for all Folders in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    Hi there, is there a way to set the default view based on specific file types rather than general ones like video/pictures? I want to always sort by Rating, Descending for ALL picture types (ARW, .CR2, .JPG, .png) but it doesn't seem to stick at all. For all other document folders, I want sort by date modified.

    Hello tententwenty, :)

    You could set a default folder view for all folders using the same folder template, but I'm not aware of a way for file types.

    Merge Files and Folders into one list

    When sorting by name, folders are grouped together (in alphabetical order) and then files (in alpha order)
    Is there any way to integrate these so there is no distinction / grouping between folders & Files?
    The best way I found to combine the files and folders into one simple list is by using Directory Opus 12

    I don't find my problem addressed in this tutorial. My download folder insists on being arranged by date blocks: today/yesterday/earlier this week/last week/earlier this year. I don't want that at all. I want all items in the folder to be in name order. That's what I've chosen in the drop down "sort" in view, but I see nothing that controls this arranging in date blocks. No way to override it or turn it off.

    Thank you Farvatten. I hadn't explored 'current view' just show/hide. I knew that setting must be there somewhere. I find setting up a new computer after over a decade on the old one to be more frustrating than I imagined. It takes so much tweaking to get it like I want it.
