With Vista it is enabled regardless the view type you are using, I would prefer that to be present on the tiles view instead of the details view only. Is it still possible with 7 ?

you can select 'sort by' on the right-click context menu whatever view you have...

Your screenshot tells us you have chosen "Group by name" or "Group by tags", the blue icons are group icons.

Details you want are not seen in group view.

you can only get that in detail view. Bothers me too. It has been taken out in list view on the assumption that detail columns serve no purpose elsewhere then in detail view.

Ah, 2 steps forward, one back.
