Windows 7: Details View too Tight


20 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 
Details View too Tight

This happens after I try DreamScene Activator from here:
DreamScene Activator: Activate DreamScene In All Editions Of Windows 7 & Vista | door2windows

My folder view is resetted for all folder types to default details view, auto-folder discovery is likely turned off too, and some view modes is too tight including list, details view modes. But view modes in Library doesn't affected. Well, I can't explain it clearly but focus on the blue selection color where at library is wider than in any other mode

I've tried to remove DreamScene Activator and sfc with no luck
Thanks

EDIT: Auto-Refresh is disabled too. So I have to click Refresh to view file I copied, moved, or extracted. And I don't have any idea to enable it

Can't you just move the column header to the size you need it to be.?

i'm not quite sure what your problem is, if you want to make the columns wider or narrower, move your mouse pointer to the top of the column where i've put the red lines.

Name:  column.png
Views: 4
Size:  8.0 KB

your mouse cursor should then change, and you will be able to resize the width. i tried to get a screenshot of this, but it was difficult.

==========================================

the auto-refresh thing is an annoying bug that only a few people experience. i've had it from time to time (even with sp1) and would love to know what the fix is. do you have any system restore points? that was the only way i could get rid of the very annoying problem.

No. I don't mean the Left-Right wide but the up-down wide of file selection (the row width I guess)
And please tell me how to enable auto-refresh

do you mean the height of each blue bar?

or the whole width of it? it seems wider in your library view because there is an empty and wide 'size' column on the right.

Update:

If I change the folder type to something other than "General Items", the row width is back to normal. So I guess the problem is with "General Items" folder types
