Whenever I open a folder in windows 10 and enter something in the search field, the results appear in the "Content" way of viewing them. I want them to be viewed in the "list" or "details" way.

How to change the default?

  • When you search in explorer you can see a search option in tittle of explorer. Click on it and uncheck file contents.
