Changing Views in File Explorer WINDOWS 8



In File Explorer, you can choose among several views to see the

items on your drive from different perspectives. For example,

you might choose to view picture files as small icons of the

pictures, or you might choose to see documents in a folder displayed

in a detailed list that includes the file names, date modified,

and size. The ability to display items in different layouts

and grouped or sorted by certain criteria makes File Explorer

an invaluable tool for navigating through the contents of your

hard disk or an external storage device.
