Changing the view

I like the "Details" view because it lists "file type" and "date modified" information Let's say your PC is running Windows XP...and you open a folder...and you don't like how the contents of the folder are displayed.  Maybe you're thinking, "I want the DETAILS, but ALL I SEE ARE LARGE THUMBNAILS!!"  (maybe you missed your morning coffee and it's been one of those days already...)

How can you change the way the contents of a folder are displayed?

  • Click on View from the menu bar
  • Select your preferred view  (Thumbnails, tiles, icons, list, or details)

FolderViews Whew! That was a step in the right direction!  Now...  how can you change it so the contents of ALL folders are displayed the same way and you never will have to be bothered by this again?

  • From the menu bar, select Tools->Folder Options
  • Click on the View tab
  • In the Folder Views section, click on Apply to All Folders
