Tiles view missing from (My) Computer view?
Hello all. Apologies if this has been asked before, but I searched and didn't find anything. I also searched Google, but everyone who complained of the problem had a different setup from me. I also posted this to Notebook Forum if any of you are there. Anyway, my preferred view for the old My Computer, called just Computer in Windows 7, is the default "Tiles" view, per the attached file Tiles.jpg which I screenshot off my work computer. But it's not available on my brand new machine. There is no Tiles view available in the dropdown. It has been replaced with an "Extended Tiles" view which is completely useless. I think this may have happened when I tried and failed to install Win8 over 7, but who knows, I just noticed it the other day. The best I can do is a custom "Details" view, per the attached Details.jpg. It has basically the same information about the drives but lacks the other hardware. I know this is not a big problem, but I would like to fix it anyway. All the posters in other forums where this issue arises installed some kind of aftermarket software which modified their folder views. I did install one called Folder Options X which disables full line selection within folders, but I have this installed on both computers so that can't be the culprit. I do not want to reset all my folder views unless absolutely necessary. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. TIA.

It sounds like something may have gone wrong using the disable full row select if that is the only thing you did that affected folder views.
Usually, it's required to reset folder views back to default to have "Tiles" instead of "Extended Tiles".
