Hi Ted, if the shortcuts don't work, another way, is with the focus in the items view: 1. No items should be selected. If an item is selected, you can deselect it by pressing ctrl+spacebar. 2. Open the context menu. 3. Open the view sub menu, and choose the view you want.
Concerning making all the other folders have the same view. Since Windows Vista, you can have more control over applying views to other folders. Rather than simply applying to all folders, you can apply to all folders which are optimized for the same kind of files. Folders can be optimized for documents, music, pictures, videos, and general items. For a folder, the setting of its optimization for the kind of files it contains is found on the Customize page of the folder's properties dialog. Note also that the view settings of some top levels folders, like your personal folder, and This PC have independent settings. To apply the view of the current folders to all the other folders which are optimized for the same kind of files: 1. To open the Folder Options dialog: open the File menu (Alt + F), and choose Options. 2. Move to the View page. 3. Press the Apply to Folders button. A Folder views dialog opens asking you whether you want all folders of this type to match this folder's view settings. Press Enter to press the Yes button. 4. Tab to the OK button and press it.

First, within folders, how do I change the view to either list view or detail view, and how do I make all other folders conform to the same view as the changed folder? I could do it with Windows X P, but the same procedure is not working the same for me in Windows Ten with these upper and lower ribbons. I also tried to do this with the hot keys shift-control-5 and shift-control-6, but nothing happened. Thanks for any ideas on how to accomplish this.
