    Thanks everyone for you replies. Indeed, the width of EACH column depends on the file/folder in THIS column with the longest name. All columns have different widths (contrary to Windows 7 and prior). It was the case before 1709 and still is now. But now I always have a blank at the end no matter what. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything helpful about Windows Metrics.

    Hello, I apologize, I should've linked you to the main source of the Window Metrics. But if you've already seen this page, then hopefully some other people have other suggestions.
    Here's the link: WindowMetrics

    If you haven't seen this page yet, then look at each one listed there, maybe there is something that could be it. Keep in mind: Every time you adjust a Registry entry, restart the computer for it to apply. And if after the restart you don't see it applies, then re-edit that Registry entry back to its default value.

    I've been having this exact same problem and have been trying to scour for an answer. I just registered for this forum simply to acknowledge this fact. I tend to do a lot of file moving and renaming, and of all the changes with this build I loathe this the most. If anyone has hunted down a way to put this back the way it was before 1709 I'd dearly love to know.

    Hi, another quirk I've just noticed:
    Here's List view

    Now if I hover over Extra Large or Medium Sized icons, then back to List view, I see

    Size all columns to fit is only available for Details view.
