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.
