No - and I didn't mention anything about how many headers there are - I
talked about the fact that the entire window automatically moves from one
side to the other while I am trying to rearrange files in one view, cannot
adjust header width to MY specifications in another view, and cannot read
file size or date created in the other somewhat useful view.
I hate it ... I can't have it in "classic view" because Vista doesn't
actually GIVE the classic view ... it only offers the new bells-n-whistles
view that are a HUGE problem for me.
I want XP again ... if I can't set the folder view options to the way I want
them ... I don't want them.
