Disable Automatic Folder Type Discovery for Templates in Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista

Windows 10 is known for automatically changing the folder view depending on the contents of the folder. While this is useful in some cases, it can be a very annoying feature for users who prefer to configure their folder view types manually. Some users do not like the operating system automatically adjusting the view and overriding their preferences. Let's see how to disable automatic folder type discovery in Windows 10.

You need to save the following to a .reg file and double-click it to merge it into the registry:
