How to restore the default folder view settings?

Restoring default folder view settings is a relatively simple process that can be done through the Windows File Explorer. By restoring your folder view settings to the factory defaults, you can erase any changes that have been made to the way folders appear in the file explorer, such as changing the icon sizes or changing the background.

The following steps outline how to restore the default folder view settings in Windows File Explorer.

1. Open the Windows File Explorer. To do this, either press the Windows Key + E on your keyboard, or select the folder icon from the taskbar.

2. Select the ‘View’ tab from the toolbar at the top of the window.

3. Select ‘Options’ on the far right side of the toolbar, and then select ‘Change Folder and Search Options’ from the drop-down menu.

4. A new window will open with several options to choose from. Select the ‘View’ tab at the top of this window.

5. At the bottom of the window, you will see a section labeled ‘Restore Defaults’. Select the ‘Restore Defaults’ button, and then select ‘YES’ on the popup window that appears.

That’s all there is to it! Now your folder view settings have been restored to the factory default. You may have to close and re-open the window in order for your changes to take effect.

If you find that none of these steps have fixed your problem, you can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the Windows File Explorer. This will erase any customizations you have made, but it should also restore the defaults.

To uninstall the Windows File Explorer, open the Control Panel and select ‘Uninstall a Program’. Then, find Windows File Explorer in the list of programs and select it. There should be an option to uninstall or repair the program. Select ‘Uninstall’ and follow the instructions to completely remove it from your computer.

After uninstalling the File Explorer, you can reinstall it using the same steps outlined above. When you select the program to uninstall, you should be given the option to install it again. Select this option and follow the instructions to install the File Explorer on your computer.

After reinstalling the File Explorer, you should find that your folder view settings have been restored to the factory defaults.

Following these steps should help you restore the default folder view settings. If you still encounter issues or need additional help, you can refer to your computer’s user guide or contact the manufacturer for technical assistance.
