Windows 7: Details View too Tight

OK. Solved.
First, close all Explorer windows. Open Regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell and delete "BagMRU" and "Bag" keys and close Regedit

Then open ONE folder you want to fix and close it

Open Regedit again and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags (This key store all your folder view settings) and find ALL DWORD Values called FFlags and change its value to 41200001 in hexadecimal and close Regedit

Open troubled folder again (it should be fixed now) and open Folder Options -> View -> Apply to Folders. And if you happen to come across a folder that is "fixed" but you don't want to fix it (for example Computers) just open Folder Options -> View -> Reset Folders.

Done and sorry I can't make better tutorials
Thanks
