Preferences in Windows Explorer...

by shawnlin / March 1, 2007 11:46 PM PST

Does anyone know how I can set the Windows Explorer view to "List" or "Details"?

I strongly prefer that format and it's pain when I have to constantly change the view.

Set one folder window to view in List or Details.
Go to Tools > Folder Options.
Click on the View tab.
Make sure "Remember each folder's view settings" is checked. You might have to scroll down.
Click "Apply to all Folders" button at the top.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
