Hello. My problem in Windows 7 Explorer. How to disable this is arrangement of icons? Look at screenshot.


I need normal arrangement icons like in screenshot 2(like Windows XP).


PS. I need size of icons 32x32 and normal arrangement like Windows XP.

Thanks.

Hello Lexus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you have it set to Tiles view instead of Medium icons view.

Icon Size - Change in Windows Explorer Window

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yes, i know it. But when select Medium icons, icons size 48x48. If lower the slider when the icon size is 32x32, icons auto change arrangement like at screenshot 1 in first post

You could use step 2 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below when using Medium icons to set a custom icon size in the folder.
Desktop Icons - Custom Size
Afterwards, if you like, you could apply this to all folders with the same folder template, or all folders.
Folder View - Apply to Folders

or

Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

I know all this. There is another problem

I not like whis is icon size. Can clearly see that the icons are scale. Contours are not smooth. Look at screenshot



I need icons size 32x32 and normal arrangement. Like icon size 32x32 at screenshot 1 in first post, and normal arrangement like screenshot at this post

Thanks for trying to help

I'm pretty sure that this can not be fixed by standard methods. Need to edit the registry or something else. But I do not know how((

The artifacting icons can't be helped due to the icon's original small size. When set to be viewed any larger than their original size, they will artifact like that.

Personally, I do not see a difference between the icon sizes in your screenshots. They look the same to me other than one in "Tiles" and the other "Medium icons". Both have medium icons by default.

The only way to change that is to use the scroll wheel method to have a custom size. Of course, this is not going to help with the artifacting for the above reasons.

Can go the other way. Trying to disable the arrangement of icons like in the screenshot 1. Then it would solve all problems. What do you think? And where to look...

I'm afraid that we may be misunderstanding each other or something.

If you want your icon arrangement to look like the second screenshot, the selecting Medium icons should do it. If that is not what you meant, then please give more details.

I made a picture.
