How to change default view to "List" from "Details" view ?????

I need to know how to view all my folders in a list view not detailed. Everytime I changed to list it keeps going back to detailed. Please help. windows 7 64 bit



In Windows Explorer, have you tried...
- Arrange the view as desired
- From menu, Tools, Folder Options, View, Apply to All Folders.

Open any folder then click the arrow next to the Views button on the toolbar then select the view setting (in your case "list").
On the toolbar, click: Organize, then click: Folder and search options.
In Folder Options dialog box, click: View tab, click: Apply to Folders, click: Yes, and then click: OK.

Bear in mind that the folder listed is your *root* so applying to all folders will only apply to folders under your *root* folder; e.g. in my case 'Computer' is my root folder.

Open the folder options menu, go to the 'View' tab and select 'Apply to all folders'

NOTE: If you do not make any changes to your folder options then the 'Apply to Folders' option will be greyed out.

I did what was suggested many times but unfortunately it did not work to stay as list. I never did it from the computer folder but when I did now the apply to folders is still grayed out??



If this issue is important to you (and it is to me), you can get xPlorer2 from zabkat.com. You set up xPlorer2 as you wish and then save the settings. It will open up the same way and in the same spot on the desktop every time you use it. I use it all the time and have done for years. Works in Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
