    Hi

    I want to set MS office so that when I look in a folder or my documents it shows the files in a list rather than icons. Can I reset so that it defaults this way for all existing folders and new ones I create.

    Thanks for your help

    Open any folder...My Documents will do...and arrange it the way you want all folders to be arranged using the View menu.

    Once you have it the way you want it, up at the top go to Tools>Folder Options and go to the View tab. Click the "Apply to all folders" button, click OK.

    If it's the appearance of folders that open when you use the Save As or Open feature in an Office application, if they don't display the changes you made in Folder Options, on the right-hand side, just above where the folder contents display, there are several buttons.

    Hover the cursor over each until you find the "View" button. Click the tiny down-pointing arrowhead next to it to open the list of choices and click on the one you want.
