problem grouping files in win7

Hello ,
I hope I would get some help to my problem that is bothering me from a long time.

I was using win xp before and i liked the feature show in groups when sorted alphabetically.
It used to look like this groping for every single alphabet separately.

But now in win 7 when ever i do this it only creates 3 groups like (a-h) (h-..) and so on No matter how many files i have in that folder.

I want to make it look like xp .. please help me ......

Doesn't look like that is possible. I'm pretty sure they are phasing this feature out. Microsoft wants users to start using Search, since you can also save query results.
