How could I change the order of the columns in the browser:

There isn't a vertical scrollbar to show the columns header outside the view. Could one show one?

May be the folder-always-alphabetically option would be useful to be shown here:

View > View as > Details
View > Sort by > Show headers ... stay checked

Now you have an horizontal slide bar and you can right click on headers to modify order etc ...

Then go back to "View, View as > Thumbnails + labels"

Great, thank you, can I switch between the "normal" view und that detail view by clicking on an icon (could not find one) or using a shortcut? Or how could I else organize the views / layourts that I quickly can switch between them? Why are the column headers not movable in the thumbnails view?

And can one give "Layouts" a name? This is useless for me (because I do not remember the differnet layouts):

I proposed the same thing, several months ago . Perhaps we should post a new suggestion , a one-click switch ...

Thank you!

Yes, but actually this seems to be a double-click switch at least (obviously and unbelievably without the option to name the layouts):

And a search in the toolbar tab in the settings would be great as well.
