Windows 7: 'VIEW' in My Docs

'VIEW' in My Docs

Good morning again everyone,
You have all afforded me plenty of help, and it's highly appreciated. Now I have another question.
I can't get the view in My DOcs to alphabatize in downward fashion, as XP had. As example, 'A' titled folders now go from right to left, as if reading a book. I want all the 'A;s' to go down, as before. Any suggestions?
Thank you wonderful ones

Thank You Jerry. Yes, that did it.
Only thing is, now it's giving me a scrollbar, not allowing me to view them all at once. As a sidenote, I never allow my open window (except for internet use, never on desktop) to go full screen. How can I get them to let me pull the window sideways and view without a scrollbar? Thanks, once more
Edit: Also, it is showing this highly annoying 'alphabetized 'split' between folders, example: 'A-I' then a break, 'J-N-, another break....grrrrowl !!
In below pic, the scrollbar would be vertical and to the right, which I'm sure you know.

Sorry I have no idea, the more you have in a folder a scrollbar will show up.
Maybe someone else will know?

Nope, you were right all along Jerry. I kept playing around in 'details' and it corrected. Thank you again
