    Item select rectangular box in list view since Creator's Update

    Since the release of Windows 10 Creator's Update, Microsoft introduced a subtle but (at least for me) very annoying feature when you're using List View in any of your folders:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	rectangle box.png 
Views:	27 
Size:	5.0 KB 
ID:	142986

    Now the blue item select rectangular box It occupies the entire size of the column in which the file is, when before the release of Creator's Update it only occupied the size of the file name. This is very annoying to me because I continually do "missclicks" and inadvertently clicking on a file. Is there any way to change this by modifying the registry or some other way?

    Thanks very much for your attention.

    Hello APoL0x,

    This is called "full row select".

    Unfortunately, the methods to disable auto arrange and full row select no longer work starting with Windows 10 Creators Update. Hopefully it will be possible in a future version of Windows 10.
