    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?

    You're looking for the "List View" option, and it is already back in private
    builds of Vista... you will be able to see it when the public release of RC1
    is available :)
