Windows 7: Explorer.exe - Details Cols when viewing pics as Icons?

Explorer.exe - Details Cols when viewing pics as Icons?

On Vista, I used to switch looking at images I'd created from being sorted by Name, to sorted by Date Modified (by use of the different Details Columns in Vista) whilst I was viewing the images as Icons. This was extremely useful to me.

Now in Win7, I have to first change them to Details View, then click on the column I want to arrange them by, and then switch back to Icons View. Is there any way to restore the details columns when looking at pictures as Icons?

Right click a blank area, sort by. See the More... entry if necessary.

I do this, but it's sort of a long-way around. I'm looking more for the columns to be available when viewing as Icons.

Explorer is what it is.

IrfanView Thumbnail browser may support this.
