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?

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.

Why is folder size not displayed when viewing in the details mode?
There's something about Windows that has always puzzled me. Let's say you have a directory in which there are some additional directories (folders) and some standalone files. When in that directory you select details for your viewing mode. Right click on a standalone file, select properties and...
