Resetting default folder-view behavior

    A few weeks ago I must have inadvertently pressed some key combination, and
    now every folder I open is displaying as a photo/video folder, with no
    filenames dislplayed.

    This is happening even for folders containing no images or video.

    I've gone through and unchecked the "Hide File Names" on a number of
    folders, only to have the file names missing again when I reopen (some of)
    them at a later date.

    Clearly, whatever I accidentally did has affected nearly all of the folder
    views on my machine, because if I go into folders I haven't opened for over a
    month (which contain only text documents and sub-folders), even those are not
    displaying file names.

    How do I get the system-wide properties of folder display back to the way it
    was, where the default view of a folder's contents was the "Documents" or
    "All Items" display? I can see how to do it for sub-directories, but not
    system wide.

    Thank you.
