Only from pull-down menu. From context menu does not work.

Any help is much appreciated!
Try this: Windows Explorer Auto Arrange - Disable

If it does not work for you, use Folder Options X.

Thanks, Anixx! It works this way but Auto Arrange is disabled now (obviously).

P.S.: replace 1124073476 with 1124073473 in the .bat file and Auto Arrange is back.

I think I achieved what I wanted Without using 3rd party software too!

If I could only figure out how to turn off automatic sort in Windows Explorer...

Anixx, the script doesn't correct the position of the text in Open/Load, Save As... menus.

Start Notepad >> File >> Open... to replicate this issue.

Do you know how to modify the ahk script to have a "List" / "Details" folder view in these menus?

Now I wish there was a javascript or something to set the icon size to 32x32. This would be useful for people like me who have the explorer command bar hidden, and rely on Classic Shell/CTRL + Mouse Wheel to set the icon size. It would be nice to just add a shortcut to whatever Javascript to Classic Shell's explorer toolbar, or even in the right-click menu (probably not in 'View' though, just because that seems to be more internal).

Nobody knows how MS does change the icon size smoothly. All AHK scripts I have seen use emulation of mouse wheel for the purpose.

Anixx, your tweak works in Win8.1 but the 32px icons are blurred. On the desktop everything is crisper sharp. Everywhere else the icons are blurred. Do you have any idea why?

They can be blurred only if they are NOT 32px. Are you sure you made them exactly 32px?

Oh, I'm sorry. I had to scroll one more time to make them 32px. I think the icon sharpness is OK now.

P.S.: to be honest it still doesn't look as sharp as in Win7.

Medium Icons > scrolling 6 times = 32px?

P.S.2: Win8.1 doesn't have a slider like that. I will try to change it via the registry.

If you are using mouse scroll, it can skip some positions, like 32px. To adjust the size more precisely either use the slider as on the screenshot above or directly edit registry.

If you still want to use mouse wheel for this purpose, then change the scroll resolution in mouse properties (change scroll 3 lines to scroll 1 line).
