Whenever I'm using Blender's file browser, I prefer to see the files in the thumbnail display mode, instead of the vertical list. So I have to change it every time by clicking on the display mode button. is there a way to set the display mode to thumbnail on default?

    $\begingroup$ It seems to remember whatever you set it to before exiting Blender here (3.0.1). You may need to have Auto-save Preferences on (which I do by default here) but I've not checked that. $\endgroup$

  • Open up Blender, and press ⎈ Ctrl + S to save the file.

  • In the file browser, switch the display mode to thumbnail.

  • Then hit the cancel button, to close the file browser.

  • Then open Blender's user preferences, and hit the save preferences button.

Thanks to John Eason for helping me figure this out.

    $\begingroup$ You can also do it by enabling Show Thumbnail in Preference>Save & Load>File Browser. $\endgroup$
