Remarks

For an ordinary folder in the file system, the DisplayType property returns File folder.

Here are some examples of the value of the DisplayType property when you use a CommonFolderQuery value other than DefaultQuery.

  • If you specify GroupByType, the value of DisplayType may be JPEG image or PNG image. The folders have the same name as the display type.
  • If you specify GroupByMonth, the value of DisplayType is Stack. The folders have names like October 2014 or November 2014.
