Windows 7: Arrange all items in Windows Explorer detailed view!!

04 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Arrange all items in windows explorer detailed view like XP does!!

to understand what im saying do this:

1. go to a random folder on your pc that has at least some files
2. change the view to detailed view
3. now press the key CTRL and +
4. now see that all items arranged to show the full information like filename etc.

see schreenshot:

but different from Windows XP it arranges ONLY THE VISIBLE items, while on Windows XP doing the same thing ALL OF THE ITEMS in the folder are arranged, you can notice that by srcolling down and up.

now i would like to do the same arrangement of files and folders that Windows XP does, in Windows 7. is there any registry hack or other way? maybe an software which does this function?

thanks so much i would appreaciate any help!!
