MY docs window size

Minor irritating feature. In our household we have replaced My Docs with 2 similar (X's Docs & Y's Docs). When those windows open X's Docs shows folders/files/ etc 6 icons wide; in other words if there are 15 such icons, then there are 6 in each of 2 rows and a final row of 3. But in Y's Docs we cannot get the window to show more 3 icons per row, even if we drag the window wider and close at that new size. Any solutions please?

When you are in the required Window, Right click and look at Arrange Icons. Go away from the Auto Arrange. This should help.

thanks for that TonyV. Unfortunately it didn't solve the poroblem, BUT by chance it did! While folowing your suggestion we discovered that the problem was in the fact that Y's Docs has 2 layers/levels . It was the lower, more detailed level that wouldn't behave as we wanted, but when we increased the size of the top layer the lower one stayed at our required width too.

Eureka!
