    What?

    It's not Windows, it's you. Why do you not have the full toolbar at the top, where you can easily tell it how to display files and their icons? Find the little up/down arrow icon up at the top/right of your window, next to the blue "?" icon. Toggle that arrow boy.

    Well, that's kind of weird. It even changes the font size.

    I just like the details view because I'm old fashioned. Bring back MS-DOS 2.11

    You can learn something new very day. I do not know where you found that but it is great.

    You have to click on View tab first. Too much work. Too much time. In Windows 7 the view options only required a short move and a single click.

    That only makes the icons large or small. In Windows7, Details, thumbnail size, etc. was in easy reach. I like thumbnails because I'm a visual person. They had the layout of Windows 7 perfected. They can't leave well enough alone.

    Shocking, isn't it, that "they" don't make the world and everything in it to exactly match our individual predilections and preferences. When I'm dictator it'll all be different! Mind, these differences may suit you even less. Still, as long as I'm happy. After all, I am the centre of the universe, despite what the cat and you think. Oh yes I am!! :-)

    There is an alternative outlook, mind - one I have been forced to adopt until the ladywife arranges the revolution that will make me dictator: adapt one's expectations and behaviour to the often awkward ways of the world. After all, that's what the other 7.5 billion folk have to do.

    When I'm the dictator Microsoft will totally rewrite Windows to work and look exactly like Apple OSX..... So you all better start learning OSX now!

    by the way... I run a Mac keyboard on my Win machine and use AutoHotKey to mimic Mac key combo's. I'm on my way to ruling the world...

    Well, vi is better than edlin, but at least maybe vim?

    If I need a quick change of view, I use the context menu. Right-click and choose "View -->".

    What bugs me the most is Windows keeps changing a folder view after you leave it and go somewhere. You come back and it's set to a different view. It NEVER remembers (although is is supposed to).

    Which of the 3 wears out the ESC key faster?

    Thanks, that's better than moving the mouse pointer a mile to change views anyway. Two clicks and not much mouse movement.

    I don't think Windows 7 changed folder/file views as much when you returned to them. There should be a default view setting in Explorer the user can select globally. When you select large thumbnails for one thing it should be the same for everything on the computer. I should also be able to custom position the quick-view icon. Large thumbnails is the one I use most by far for hunting for stuff in Explorer. The search bar is handy too.
