  1. Many of my folders including c:\ and Windows as well as documents show up as Pictures and videos in the explorer window.

    While most other folders views can be customized to show as All Items, Documents, Pictures etc. The customize option is not available for C: or c:\windows. (Using the properties pane)

    The top headers for the view are name, date taken, tags, size. I have tried to change the view by selecting the right columns but it gets reset.

    How do I change the view properties of the c drive or the system directories.

    Sunil.

    What version of Windows are you running?
