    I belief that Classic Shell has integrated line spacing in their newest version.

    Classic Shell - spacing

    Love Classic Shell, but AFAIK you can only change the spacing in the navigation pane, not the file list pane.

    Am I missing something, because I sure would like to change it without mucking through changing the dll.

    For those who are still looking for 64 bit tweaked file, you can try this one. It's a modified file I just did and so far it works fine (i'm using details view primarily). I'm not responsible if anything happens on your system though. I use both this tweak and the classic shell. This is NOT a zip file, I used ".zip" extension to bypass the upload requirement. So just remove the ".zip" from the filename and replace your explorerframe.dll file.

    Thank you to everyone who has kindly post the instructions.

    Yes, just wanted to say THANK YOU as well! The file worked perfectly and now one of my biggest Win7 gripes is no longer an issue. :)

    Actually, there's a small hiccup... Your replacement .dll works great for tightening up Explorer, but for some reason using it completely wipes out Firefox's folder navigation in the Save As window:

    The pane's still there, just none of the icons or folder tree are. Any idea why that's happening?

    Just signed up after finding this forum and wanted to say thanks to Tweaker, Ron11 & Artharman for the info. The 22rp edit provided by Artharman fixed my details pane and Ron's steps worked so I didn't have to log out.

    The procedure works as described on W7 Pro 64bit, but you must make sure to:

    1. Use Resource Hacker
    version 3.5.2 beta
    2. Use "Save", NEVER use "Save As"!

    My procedure:

    1. Take ownership, etc. of "ExplorerFrame.dll" in c:\windows\system32
    2. create backup of ExplorerFrame.dll !!!
    2. Copy ExplorerFrame.dll to user folder
    3. Edit with RH, press "Compile script", "Save"
    4. Start Administrator console (Start, type "cmd", press ctrl+shift+enter)
    5. From console: Kill explorer.exe (I've been using pskill from Mark Russinovich since NT...)
    6. From console: Copy edited ExplorerFrame.dll to system32 folder
    7. Run "explorer.exe" either from console or task manager

    That's it. You do not even need to log off / log on, just kill & restart explorer.exe.

    If you mess up & explorer is unable to start, reboot computer in "Safe mode with command prompt" and replace the .dll with backup copy. No restore or new install needed

    ...If I had to guess it would be


    there's only one occurence of that (inside a <style resid="details"> block), and 22 pixels is exactly the line size in details view. But I can't say for sure that it will work.

    edit: for reference 17 would be the old windows height

    Changing as in the first lot below results in list spaced correctly but not details. If then search for <UICollection resid="collection.details and in addition change


    then the list view reverts to stupid spacing and the details becomes correct. So then I tried changing the details padding to padding="rect(1rp,0,0,0) and it went back to list being correct but details being stupidly spaced. Any ideas?
    In the following 3 sections
    <UICollection resid="collection.list.groups"
    <UICollection resid="collection.list.ungrouped"
    <UICollection resid="collection.list.insidegroup"

    Here is how to do it on Windows 10 for details view.
    Win10 details view padding | WinClassic

    I can't thank the OP of this thread enough, this was my biggest pet peeve with Win7, now it can be fixed for Win10 too.
