1. Make nothing is highlighted / selected and press the application key to open the context menu or use Shift + F10 if you don't have an application key.
2. Down arrow to, Group by submenu, press enter, now navigate to, None, and press enter.
3. Again make sure nothing is selected, open the context menu and make your choices in the View & Sort by submenues.
Here is a list of the shortcut keys for changing the type of view:
CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 4 Small Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content view.
