How can I remove the sorting tabs COMPLETELY in folders in Vista Home Premium SP2 OS?
You can see the details in the below image:
you can remove all but NAME, just right click on the bar and remove the checkmarks of the columns you may not want to be displayed.
They can only be hidden if that functionality was made accessible, say through explorer options.
The closest I came to an answer, is using API calls to tell the list view to hide the columns, for example a 3rd party tool could do this. I don't know of any 3rd party tools that implement this already.
Unless we can find or make such a tool, we're stuck with the columns.
