Are you serious?

That is ****ed up! Thats why i didn't use Vista. I hoped this would be better. I don't understand why they have removed that option? it's alot easier to find the thing you need when you can control where every icon is! /:

You can arrange the columns how you like.

You can also change the folder templates.

So is there a way to make the icons move just like in XP?

Hi Beckhamstef,

Sorry, not in Windows Explorer for Vista or Windows 7. Only on the desktop. For Windows Explorer, you have the options posted above.

So if it's a BETA version, (and considering the landslide of users who want it) can we hope that it will be fixed until the full release? Can you as an Admin send this problem to someone who can fix it?

Beckhamstef,

You can send feedback to Microsoft directly about your suggestion, but since it was not a part of Vista and Windows 7 Beta, I would doubt that it will be a part of the final Windows 7 though.

I honestly don't find it a problem as I like auto arrange on anyway in my folders and I just have align icons to grid on my desktop, the best thing to do is not make your folders to cluttered and organize them into different categories, that way every thing is easy to find.
