I'm getting details on anything I click, even folders show "Date Modified"

And I'm using Standard windows 7 themes, no patching or customization (appart from wallpaper)

Have tried 3 different themes, now on Windows Classic in the Basic section!

According to what I have just read in a MS foum, this feature was wihdrawn in Vista and Win 7. To get it back one needs "Classic Shell". I have downloaded this but as I don't really need it I don't intend installing it. But odd that the drive detail is showing on your Setup. Have you ever heard of "Classic Shell"?

OK New development. I have been highlighting the Drives in the navigat ion panel on the left. If I d/click "Computer " in that pane then highlight a drive in the right pane I do indeed get all the details. I wonder if the OP is highlighting in the "Wrong" place like me?

Highlighting a drive gives the same detail as a folder above. No free space detail.
And that's what i am missing , not sure how to get it back exactly? Do you know how?
Its blank there now , but that's my main issue right now.

Where are you highlighting the folder or drive, in the left nav pane or the right pane? See my post above!

The drive itself , and also that same tab would come across the bottom for image files , or any particular file i had highlighted for that matter .
