I've been using Windows 7 since April 2013 and thanks to Classic Shell and Classic Explorer I've survived it so far ;-)

Today I changed the icons for open and closed folders like so
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Shell Icons]
"3"="\"C:\\ClassicShell\\icons\\folder3.ico\""
"4"="\"C:\\ClassicShell\\icons\\folder4.ico\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons]
"3"="\"C:\\ClassicShell\\icons\\folder3.ico\""
"4"="\"C:\\ClassicShell\\icons\\folder4.ico\""

to the old icons from Windows XP.

In Classic Explorer you can change the tree item spacing in the Navigation Pane.

Question: Can you also somehow change the spacing in the file pane? I'd like to reduce the space in between the icons. See attached screenshot.

Perhaps the answer is "no": GauravK

The left pane of Explorer uses the standard treeview control whose behavior can be modified because it is documented. The right pane of Windows 7/8 Explorer uses an undocumented private ItemsView control.

Use Folder Options X (http://free-sk.t-com.hr/T800soft/softwa ... ptions.htm) to disable full row select. It forces Explorer to use the older List View control which has reduced icon spacing. It works except for Libraries.

Fantastic! Thank you so much.
Folder Options X was already installed on my machine, but I had it do nothing, since I wasn't aware of this feature. Now the view looks like this (see attachment).
Thank you once again for the great software and the great support.
