There have been some interesting changes to File Explorer introduced in Windows 10 Technical Preview, in the way it looks, and the view it opens to. In this build File Explorer opens to a new “Quick Access” view by default. This new view opens File Explorer to display frequently used files and folders as shown in the screen shot below.
Some people might actually like this new view, but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, and you can change it.
Change Windows 10 Default File Explorer View
To change the view open File Explorer and go to View > Options and click “Change folder and search options”.
That will open Folder Options to the General tab. From there switch “Open File Explorer to” This PC and click OK and close out of File Explorer.
There you go! Now when you open File Explorer, you will get the traditional PC view that you’re used to.
