Customizing M-Files Desktop User Interface

You can change display settings with the Display Mode options. Right-click an empty space in the listing area and select Display Mode to see the settings.

With the Display Mode options, you can do these operations:

  • Select if the objects are shown as icons or as a details list.
  • Select if the Windows File Explorer navigation pane is shown or not.
  • Select if the task area, the right pane, and the bottom pane are shown as usual, minimized, or not at all.
  • Show or hide annotations.
  • Enable or disable the options for object grouping by object type and view and folder grouping.
  • Select a normal or a compact layout for the user interface.

You can also set the Metadata card or the Preview tab as a default tab in M-Files Desktop. For more information, see Setting Default Tab for Object.
