Yates, Danney

Hey, Brian!  You made my day, my files , in a folder on my desktop, were not showing up unless I did first letter navigation, could not scroll, but did the control shift 5 and it cleared it right up.  I needed that after a day of struggling with Microsoft Teams yesterday. lol

Have a great one

If you're running Windows 10, try the following:

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.


Take care.

Hi Brian,
Do these shortcut keys also work when you are in your folders or documents
to get list or detail view?
Mr. Ed

Hello Mr. Ed,
Yes.  These shortcut keys can be used instead of going into the contextual
menu when nothing is selected and picking the appropriate item in the View
submenu.  I believe that if you are in the UK the shift key is dropped from
the keystrokes. 
Take care.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
