Using File Explorer on W10 -- when I click a folder I sometimes get a listing of component files. Other times I get an array of icons, each showing a component file. How do I set the display type I want -- listing or icons? How do I switch from one type to another? Thanks.  ...batpark

Hello batpark,

 

I believe I understand what you're after.  First, open File Explorer, and at the top of the menu ribbon, you will see an option for "View".  Click that option, and select the layout that you would like to apply to all folders.

 

Once you select the view you would like, click on the File menu option and select Change folder and search options.  This will open the Folder Options.  From there, select the View tab at the top.  You will see 2 buttons just below; you're going to want to press the "Apply to Folders" button, which will apply the current view settings to all folders.  You will receive a confirmation prompt asking "Do you want all folders of this type to match this folder's view settings?" and select Yes.

 

This should apply the same view settings to subsequent folders.  I hope that helps! :)
