Hello Ramisaade, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but that is the only "Group By" Name option there is. It cannot be changed to be like it was in XP.

When viewing details I can click tabs to sort, but when viewing thumbnails these tabs disappear and I have to right click to sort. Is there a way to keep the tabs regardless of what view I'm on. Thanks.

Is there a way in Windows 7 to add the header (currently only visible in Details view) to all views? I mostly use Thumnails or Content views, and would like the headers to appear there also.

Maybe then it's time I install a virtual Vista and try to figure out which registry keys add that facility. With a little luck, they might work with 7 also.

Thanks.

Now that would be a great tutorial for you if you find a way.

When I change the sort order in one folder, it automaticly sets this order for all other folders as well. In XP I could set a different order for each folder.
Is it possible to have the latter in Windows 7?

Hello Hneel,

Is this inside a Library folder by chance? If so, this would be normal. While all Included Folders and subfolders in a library will always share the same folder view. You can have separate "Arrange by" view settings in each right click -> New -> Folder created in the library itself though.


Only in normal folders in Windows Explorer will they be applied per folder.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn
