[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!

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

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