    Dunno if this can be done... if not, then its REALLY annoying.

    When viewing folders from My Computer (not using Windows Explorer) all other
    versions of MS Windows use to list folders and files vertically down the
    page, well Vista lists them horizontally, and its DRIVING ME INSANE. I keep
    looking in folders and saying to myself "oh that file is missing... wheres it
    gone" only to find its on the right of the file it should really be below (if
    you know what I mean). I view all folders in View > Small Icons btw.

    I've searched EVERYWHERE in the folder options, views etc and can't find
    anything... am I missing it somewhere? Or do I have to live with it being
    listed horizontally?

    Hope that makes sense, and someone can help?

    How it is possible to view folders from My Computer without using Explorer?
    Also, the Computer folder in Vista doesn't show icons for folders or files.
    It only shows icons for drives. But there are many ways to view things in
    any folder. Use the Vuews button or hold down the Ctrl key while spining the
    mouse wheel. The Details view usually shows things vertically.

    To sort and group using column headings in any view.
