I figured out a way to move the details pane to the left, and you can also adjust the navigation pane at the top to be more XP-like and more convenient. But it is possible without navigation - see the pictures. This works on Windows10-1909 (but should also on others where OldNewExplorer is running). Unfortunately, the Reading Pane stops working and I haven't figured out how to fix it.
If anyone is interested, this is done using OldNewExplorer, you just need to tweak its dlls. Write here - if you are interested, I will post detailed instructions.
