See where it says "Devianart-PC" some idiot on windows 8 design team moved this to the right size.

How can this be moved to the bottom like it is on windows 7, aka the correct place.

It can't be moved to the bottom and the result is that only the preview pane or details pane can be shown at one time. Also, if you always kept one pane on and the other off, it means you must toggle between them to use either of them - only one at a time and then put back the one that used to be always on. Option-less design. They could have just allowed the user to drag the vertical pane to the bottom like they allow moving the taskbar or the reading pane in Outlook.

Here are my screenshots, connected by remote.

New windows 8/Server 2012 explorer, how is this better?
When snapping two windows side by side, display of files in each folder is very limited. the "preview" tab can't be adjusted in size (at least didn't figure out how yet. not enough room to have any columns added.

Even though I did install Microsoft Camera Codec pack to display raw files, it will not show thumbnails.

prooven windows 7 explorer.

Not only can I see more files, I can see date, size, and type of file. Windows 7 does show thumbnails for raw files with camera codec pack installed..

Go in the view tab. You should find the setting there.

FYI, the details pane is switched off by default

Can't be fixed. I wanted the same thing as did another user. Windows 8 is UI ****ed up in every possible way, it may be hard to repair all the damage for Windows 9.

And that is Windows 7, not Windows 8. If you modify Windows 8's shell32.dll to move any pane or do customizations in Resource Hacker, it stops booting. MS put a CRC check on it apparently.

Guide to move Details Pane to the Bottom

This shell32.dll mod has some downsides though. You'll sometimes get UAC prompts if you do stuff in explorer that requires elevation and if microsoft updates the dll you'll obviously need to apply the tweak again.

I'm using the tweak myself and it works fine. Though I have UAC completely disabled so the nag prompts are a non-issue.
