Hello everyone. English is not my native language, so please forgive any errors.

My Windows 10 has recently stopped saving some of my small preferences. For example when I run a search in File Explorer (by writing the key words in the small box at the top right), I want the results to be shown in the list view. This used to be the case, but now it's always small icons view. Even when I change it to the list view, in the next search the view goes back to small icons.

Can you guys think of a reason for this? How can I fix this problem? Thank you.

You need to 'Apply' the Folder View to each category of Folders and/or Drives depending on what type of items the Folders are optimized for.

If I perform a clean install or a Reset, I will go to each 'Parent' folder or Sub-Folder in the Navigation Pane, (except This PC itself), set the view by right clicking an empty space►View (1),
then open Folder Options from within the Ribbon/View Tab (2), 'Apply to folders' (3), click 'Yes' in the dialog (4), click OK (5).

Do that for each Navigation Pane entry. Takes a few minutes but then you'll be all set for
windows desktop.

You can simply go ahead and select restore default in the setting as posted in the post #2
