In File explorer, there are many options to change the folder layout like extra large icons, small icons, lists, tiles, etc and each of the options has a different view. Windows will set the folder view by default based on the folder contents. For example, the folder containing videos has a different view, likewise, images, documents, etc folders have different folder views.
