As admin, can I create custom default All Accounts and My Accounts list views?

I'm able to create a custom List View for Recently Viewed using Object Manager > Account > Search Layouts.  

On Search Layouts I've changed all Columns Displayed to only show the columns I want.

Yet I only see the custom layout on Recently Viewed.  All the other layouts (e.g. All Accounts, My Accounts, New This Week) show the non-custom layout.  There's even a confusingly similarly named "Recently Viewed Accounts" that looks like crap.

From this Trailhead lesson (https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/modules/lex_customization/lex_customization_list) I understand individual users can create new lists with custom layouts.  But I don't want users to have to do this extra work.  And I don't want them to have more lists cluttering their workspace. 

As an admin how do I change the columns shown on the All Accounts and My Accounts lists for the entire org?

You edit the List Views themseles, not the Search Layouts.  Simply click the gear on the List View and Select Fields to Display

Adam, thanks for the quick reply.  My understaning is that changes made that way only affect an individual user, right?  As an admin, can I not change default settings for the entire org?

As the Admin you will change the view for all users on Public List Views.  Those changes are only user specific when a user creates a List View that is Visible only to Me.
