    Windows 10 AU 1607: Icon Text Left Justified


    Yesterday I installed Windows 10 Anniversary Update 1607 14393.10

    Now my Explorer Icon Text is all Left Justified, I HATE IT!

    [EDIT] Just realised that it isn't consistent. In some windows it isn't all left justified. The first line is centred, the remaining lines are left justified to that. Terrible!

    Does the lack of replies mean I'm the only one who has this, or the only one who hates it?

    Hey, same problem here, just after the 1607 update the file names are left aligned for me too, except on the desktop. Here is a topic from microsoft forums on that:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_files/file-names-are-aligned-to-left-instead-of-center/71a386a7-085f-49a6-b3c5-1e2e75e63e33?page=1

    Hope there will be a fix for that soon, very irritating to look at.

    Same PROBLEM here (icon text is now left aligned)! Methinks the issue is: Once again, a change done by ignorance of conventions, reading protocol and how the mind/eye works.

    Doing real productive work is getting more difficult, as working environment changes to Mickey Mouse ideals.

    This is becoming change for the sake of change, with no regard to workflow continuity. This change for no reason is not just in MS's Window, but found in many new everyday items..... eg: when Coke changed.

    I hate this new Icon text Win 10 Explorer, as all my icons have long texts, and version numbers included, and wrap with inconsistencies.

    Hi, a few have mentioned this- I saw another post. Certainly doesn't occur on mine after the upgrade.

    Just to confirm, that's any of View, Large, Extra large, Medium-sized icons in explorer.

    Maybe the issue is also related to the location in the location ini. Obviously, locations that read from right to left will have another setting (eg: Hebrew, Japanese, Arabic, et al.). Gone is the world of centrists. Now we only have leftists, and rightists <vbg>.

    I do known about this issue/feature, since it was introduced a few weeks ago in one of the Insiders build, but... what can I do.. my Feedback hub is localized so I don't even have an option to search and upvote global findings from others...
