    Hiya Everyone:

    It seems that the 'default' for viewing files is as 'View, Icons.'

    Is there a way to change all the files in C drive by clicking 'View, List'
    without having to go into each 'directory' and doing it manually?

    Yes - set a folder to List view then go to Tools > Folder Options > 'View'
    tab > 'Apply to all folders" button.
