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.

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.

Easy shell32.dll edit to move that pane to bottom, someone posted it on deviantart before :p
It's part of this theme: [url="http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/imac-theme-for-Windows-8-RTM-32bit-329755849?q=gallery%3Azeusosx%2F122015&qo=2"]32bit[/url] [url="http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/imac-theme-for-Windows-8-RTM-64bit-329792690?q=gallery%3Azeusosx%2F122015&qo=1"]64bit[/url]

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.

Still fixing/tweaking windows 8 aka disaster.

thanks for bringing this up OP
Ive always been hovering my items to see the little properties pop up, I loved that bar at the bottom in win7.
I just assumed it was gone in win8. Didn't know i could turn it on (even if it is at the right)

I like it better at the bottom but atleast I have it now. Much better than not at all :)

I would do the mod but don't like to modify system files so just leaving it. regardless, much happier now with it back. I can actually see some information now :D
