In windows 7 is there a way to view the column headers in Windows Explorer when you are in icon view? When in details view you get a list of column headers that makes it easy to filter or sort by your data. Is there a way to enable the column headers when in icon view? I’ve been running Windows 7 on my main machine since RC1 so it’s been about a year and a half since I used Vista but I can almost swear that this was a feature in Vista. I can’t seem to find a way to do it in Windows 7. I find it useful when viewing folders with both photos and videos to be able to filter/sort by one type or another. If anyone out there knows how to do it pleas let me know.

Thanks,

I done some more research and it appears that Microsoft has intentionally removed this feature but you can use QTTAbBar to restore this feature. Here is a screen print of it working for me bit.ly/EnableColumnHeadersInWin7 –  MarkN Sep 14 '10 at 10:12
