Ungroup files and folders inside a folder(i.e subdirectory)

I want to ungroup all my files and folders present on computer with a single click or button or option to choose.Somehow, someone changed the "group by" option of my files and folders from none to group by "type" & "ascending".

I want to ungroup them to none but the problem is that there are some folders in my PC that contain many folders inside folder(i.e. subdirectories) and i've to manually ungroup each of these folder.

Ain't there any option that can ungroup folder and files inside a folder as well or more specifically all the files on my PC.

Any solution or suggestion please!

Hello MirzaAsad,

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to reset all folder views back to default that would also include that.

Hope this helps,

The tutorial on this page didn't worked out for me however i found another tutorial link on this page named "How to Reset the Folder View Settings for All Folders with the Same Folder Template in Windows 7", it did the job for me.

Here is the link to it incase any other might need it too

Shawn thanks very much for your help and support
