Changing order of columns in detail view
Hi! A few weeks ago I bought a new Acer netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it, after six years of using, and getting very comfortable with, XP. Some things I like, some things I don't, but I figure I should get used to the coming thing, since XP won't be around forever.
There is one thing (at the moment) that I can't figure out in Win 7 though. In XP all my windows that are opened in detail view first have the file name, then the file size right next to it. In Win 7, all the detail windows default to having the file size column over on the far right, where it's hard to see and does me no good at all. I can drag the file size column over to where I want it, of course, but I have hundreds of folders and would not like to have to do this for all of them manually. I also would prefer to have all new folders default to having the file size right next to the file name.
Is there any way I can get Starter to change the column order for all the folders at once, as well as make it the default for new ones I create?
