[Fix] Search Results defaults to Content View in Windows 10

Thank you so much for this fix! Windows 10 was driving me crazy with every search!

Here is the text to save as “details.reg” (or use whatever name works for you, as long as the extension is “.reg”).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Fixes search results defaults to Content view.
;Sets Details view as default search results view for Generic folders.
