Windows 7: modify folder view "kacheln" ...

modify folder view "kacheln" ...

hello,

I am using the "Kacheln" View (in German) , in English I dont know how it is named. It is the second last view option in the dropdown menu when you click on the button to change the folder view.
Here is a screenshot:



This is the only one folder view I like in windows7, so I dont what to move away from it. I just would like to modify it. As seen on the screenshot under the file names there are other attrubutes shown just like type, developer ect, or "Dateiordner= file folder" under the name of the folders.
I would like to remove this attributes so that only the file/folder name is shown. That is how it looks in WinXP, it is so simple.

Hope you understand what I mean. If not, dont hesitate to ask.
I hope there is a help.

guten abend, cska133, and welcome to sevenforums,

i think you are talking about 'tiles' view.

why don't you try the second view - large icons.

this only shows the name of the file/folder - is that what you want?

you can easily change the size of the icons too.

the size of the icons in LargeView is too big. I dont like this. Therefore I prefer Kacheln=Tiles view, because the size is normal and everything is clearly-presented.

You can also "scan" through all the settings by clicking on the folder, hold down control and spin the mouse wheel at the same time, then, well you had XP, you know the rest...... If you just want the folder/file name it's called list.

you mean to switch from large to middle size?

if yes, well...the problem there is that the spaces between the symbols are so narrow, everything is squoshed together. Can I change this?

Kacheln = Mittelgroße Symbole, mit zusätzlichen Datei / Ordner Informationen

Du kannst der Symbolabstand in Systemsteuerung > Darstellung und Anpassung > Anpassung > Fensterfarbe und -darstellung > Erweiterte Darstellungeinstellungen ändern:

Tiles = Medium Icons, with additional file / folder information.

You can change the icon spacing in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Personalization > Window Color and Appearance > Advanced Appearance settings:

I know about this and it is already modified by me earlier... so, the symbols on desktop AND Tiles folder view have normal icon spacing. But still by changing to Medium Icons view the icon spaces are very nerrow.
What value do I have to set for icon spacing???? When I set it more, the icon spacing in Windows Explorer is better, but the icon spaces on desktop are toooo big

That's it, mate. Nothing much what you can do

The best you can do is to write Microsoft to take this in consideration when designing Windows 8, or to search for a modified theme.

Sorry.
