Windows 7: How do I get the title bar when using large icons

How do I get the title bar when using large icons

I'm not sure if this is the correct section, it seemed like the only one which was relevant to my problem.

In Vista I used to be able to view a folders contents and arrange the files by date modified or name etc by clicking on the field on the title bar (I think it's called title bar). Now in Windows 7 when viewing large icons the title bar is missing and I have to right click in the folder and then choose 'sort by', then select what I wish to sort by. This takes a lot longer than having the title bar there. Is there a way to get the title bar back when viewing by large icons.

Thanks.

The snipping tool is a wonderful thing. Attaching a picture of what you mean is very helpful.. You can attach a file by using the paper clip after making Snipping tool copy.

For now all I might suggest is to adjust the view settings, or use the Organize option to go to folder options which are both in the "Title Bar" or close anyway

Ok, I have done a snip and attached the images. In the image I took when the folder was set to "details view" you can see the bar along the top with name, date, size etc. In the other image where I have the folder set to "large icons view" you can see that this bar is missing. I cannot find any way to get this bar when viewing 'Large Icons'. In vista this was possible but I cannot find how to get it in Windows 7. Any ideas?
