The Item List header displays the name of the folder whose contents are being listed. It also provides thefield for quickly finding items in the folder.
Item lists are organized into columns, which help you display the items in the order most useful for you. You can drag a column to a new position in the column header. You can resize a column by dragging the edge of the column heading. You can sort by columns and add new columns. For complete instructions on customizing Item Lists, see Section 2.3.4, Managing Item Lists in Folders and Section 2.3.5, Customizing Folder Display Settings.

In the first text column (for example,), you can select an item action ( , , and so on). In the other text columns (for example, , , and so on), you can select a display setting (for example, , , and so on).
