To set a default folder view:
->Go to Windows Explorer or the Computer shortcut.
-->Select the folder .Right click on it and select Properties>Customize tab>'Optimize this folder for' drop-down list and select the view you want to apply
-->You can also choose the option 'Also apply this template to all subfolders'
I will begin with, "I love Win8.1"! Microsoft finally got it right. Kudos to the developers.
Windows Explorer "Views" offers various options in Win8.1.. Sized Icons, List, Details, and others. Details seems to be the default view.
Is it possible to change the default view to List? I am constantly changing it.
