How to make Windows Explorer to show a column view?

Hey guys,
Lovin' 7 - 64bit here. Question though. In the spirit of liking how OS X Finder (windows explorer counterpart for the mac) works, I'd like to see if there's a way to manipulate windows explorer to show via column view. See screenshot.



Any ideas, other than using an outside file manager like UltraExplorer?

thanks

i'm pretty sure that you won't be able to get windows explorer to display like that.

(*shudders*)

looks like third-party time!

*edit* although you can probably get a similar effect on your start-menu, i used to do it with xp...let me research...

you can do this on your taskbar, by adding a new toolbar, and pointing it to 'computer', although it's not really the same thing...
