Make File Explorer "Search" display results in DETAIL view

Recommended Posts

Below is a URL that shows how to make File Explorer "Search" display its results in DETAIL view instead of CONTENT view.  This has always been an annoyance to me when doing a search within File Explorer and having to change the View type from Content to Detail in order to easily read the results.  It's a registry modification so use at your own risk.

I've bookmarked that page so I can determine at a later time if I'll apply that modification.

One caveat is they haven't included any undo .reg file(s) that set it back to default if someone doesn't like the change, that's usually expected for .reg files that modify things to non-defaults. So a System Restore Point being made before using those .reg files is a prerequisite to easily undo any changes.

I like how it looks before, and after to be honest, undecided. I don't have any dislike for either of them.

For anyone wondering what the difference between them is I've did some screenshots of before and after as seen below.

Before (Original Win10 Content View Setting):
