How to display files this way?



It looks quite interesting... Doesn't seem to be possible natively though.

PS: I'm talkinga bout explorer main windows, not the small part on left side.

If you want your files to look as in post #1, it's list view with known file extensions showing

control panel folder options, uncheck hide extensions for known file types

for list view, click top left button of explorer and choose list

It's not. Please show a capture of your explorer after doing so?

The first screenshot looks like a capture of groups. But to be honest I have not seen anything like that. Details view with groups applied? I tried replicating it in my VM'S but don't seem to be getting anywhere.
