How to Change how File and Folders are displayed in File Explorer (Windows 8)
In Windows 8 “Windows Explorer” (where you view the list of files on your computer) is now called “File Explorer” and it looks a little different. When you open your folders in “Documents” and then you open a sub folder/location, the view may be different. Standardize the “View Type” (or Layout). We recommend you choose a view that you are most comfortable with (most people prefer details or icons). The “Detail” view will allow you to see more folders on one page than other available views.
