Windows (file) Explorer >> View as List The above setting is driving me nuts. I ve tried everything in order to make this setting stick - but it just refuses to do so. Every so often it just reverts back to whatever it fancies (usually 'Large Icons'). I only want to see my files as ... files, no preview, no content, just the file list view I ve been accustomed to ever since I got a PC. Even if I apply the custom setting (and 'Apply to All Folders'), it just won't stick. Not only it 'forgets' my preferences for newly attached storage (e.g. ext drive), but also for existing/previously attached drives. Does anyone know a way to permanently apply this setting, once and for all, Windows-wide and for all existing and new connected storage devices so I won't have to think of it ever again? Is there a batch or reg script somewhere? Anything will do! W10 1607 LTSB... Thank you for any pointers!
