    size of file views


    I am not sure how or when this happened, but the viewing size of files within a folder changed. Here are different views from two similar files folders.

    size of file views-size-1.jpg

    Above is the size they should be.

    size of file views-size-2.jpg

    This is the size they are.

    How do I change them back to the original size?
    Thanks

    Oppps I guess I should have mentioned this: The problem is in Windows 7 and I can NOT see the "View" or I can NOT find it.

    Sorry about that.

    Ah. Yeah, the left ALT key will bring up the Menu Bar in Win 7.
