Until Windows Vista, the Explorer used ListView control in folders to display icons. Later it was changed to IconView. ListView control looks more classic: the selected icons are shaded rather than selected with huge rectangle, the table captions are more compact and it allows to manually re-arrange icons.
There are two methods of changing the used control.
