Hello Di, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The default view for this window is Tiles. If it still doesn't display the bottom screenshot afterwards, then reset all folder views to default (click on link). That should do it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The REG file will only reset all folder views to their default settings. You will still be able to manually change the folder views as before.
