Re: Names of Program Files won't show up when the icons are 'large
What I posted in my last message is the behavior I'm seeing here.
You cannot change the template on the Program Files folder (ie: Pictures and
Video, etc) as far as I can see.
Try going to Organize / Folder and Search Options / View Tab. Click the
Reset Folders Button. Apply/OK.
Restart Windows Explorer and then try my last steps.
Click the Programs Files folder in the left pane to open it. Set the View to
Large Folders. Right click an empty spot in the right pane and select the
View item. You should see the Hide File Names item.
