I do like the "Details View" of Windows 8 that is actually the same as in Windows 7. I'm referring to the view option of the items in a folder (Being more folders, photos, videos, etc). The thing is, I need the icons to look bigger, BUT keeping the info on the right of the list (Date modified, type, size, etc). I tried some tricks with the registry editor, but all unsuccessful.

Type metrics in the Start Menu search box and click on Change window colors and metrics. Then try fiddling with the icon size/spacing related settings as shown below and see if it helps:

These options only affect icon size in Tiled view and on the desktop. These do not affect icon size on list view. – jstine Aug 27 '15 at 13:22
