Windows 7: Possible to get XP type folder veiw?

Progress indeed. But since there is interest, yet a 'clean fix' hasn't appeared, there may be a reason MS chose not to include it in win 7. Perhaps one day, it will return. I could appreciate that.

If you use QTTabBar this works;





FULLROWON



FULLROWOFF

Looks interesting, but a google search revealed issues with it in 7/64bit which is what i have. Not sure if i should install it.

I am using it on 7 / 64 ( See my specs). No issues at all. Quite brilliant actually. Lots of other advantages besides being able to toggle things like full row selection.

I gave it a shot, but i can't find how to get that window in your screen. ,The program files folder has nothing but 2 dll files, and i can't find anything in the shell to pull it up when in a folder. Not so far anyways....any tips on hot to get to that config dialog?

EDIT: configured it just like in your screen but still getting selection past the names all the way to wherever the next thing is, in this case the date.

Well, 2 programs to do this....it just brings me back to what i said to james a few posts ago....too much for one tiny feature unless it's absolutly necassary. So i'll have to take a pass, but thanks. By the way, the Qbar thing didn't seem to work. Anything i changed in the dialog then click apply changed nothing. I tried quiet a few things. So for some reason i don't think it was working anyways.

It takes a few minutes to learn what's what. If you read the review I posted then you will soon have it doing exactly what you want it to do, and saving you a great deal of time and effort.

Did you enable it?

Go to toolbars and tick the boxes to enable it, or it wont do anything at all!



The fullrowselect is only a very small part of what it can do. It makes working with files and stuff a pleasure instead of a pain!

I don't use two programs to do that, I use two programs to do a very large number of things which Explorer can not do!
