How to set C:\Users\MyName\Videos\ to General Items or Documents

G'day everyone

I'd like to see file sizes and file types in my "Videos" folder. I tried using View > Customize this folder, but it doesn't change the view. How can I change the Videos folder to a view that shows me columns for file size and file type?

Thanks
Samuel

It is already in "Details" view. Details view in the Videos folder gives me the columns Name, #, Title, Contributing artists, and Album. Of which only "Name" is useful to me. File type and file size are not available as columns in this folder (yet).

Right click the columns names and add what you want to the view.
