The second screenshot doesn't work. You can't touch 16x16px lists of icons. You just can't.
Why do you keep wanting to touch things all the time? This is for the DESKTOP. So we don't get a castrated DESKTOP UI we have now in W8. So we don't get epilepsy from switching from DESKTOP to Start Scree. Capito?
Stop fighting the Desktop UI. We have it for a reason.
