Add the "line-height" option for the list of files and folders

Hi,
Add the "line-height" option for the list of files and folders
I think the list is too tight right now, especially while eyes are tired or you have eyes disease like astigmatism



Good example from Total Commander:

I'm afraid that a larger font size is not a solution.
The problem is the "lack of light" between the lines

Hmmmm, or maybe we can enlarge the icons?
Maybe it would automatically increase the height of the line?

WinSCP uses standard Windows layout. So the listing should be the same as in Windows File Explorer.

We will see, if more people ask for this.

If you have any idea how can i change this layout in Windows, that will be enough for me.
From what I see, this is not a simple

So does this imply that you indeed get the same layout (which you do not like) in Windows File Explorer?

Basically yes. That's why I'm not using Windows File Explorer. I'm using Total Commander, which is fully configurable (line-height, icons sizes, letter-spacing,font-size etc.)

If you ask me about the difference between my Windows File Explorer and my WinSCP, I put the screenshot below:
On the left - Windows File Explorer
On the right - WinSCP



Let me know if you need more info

Sorry for the delay.

I don't think so. From what I can see, maybe the font is thinner.

Anyway In Total Commander I can set it freely, for example:

Since Windows 11 "standard Windows layout" have a option "Compact view (enable / disable)" If we disable compact view, there is nice wider line height. So maybe this setting could work in WinSCP?

@kanlukasz: Windows 11 File Explorer (and maybe neither Windows 10) actually does not use the standard Windows list view control anymore. So whatever the File Explorer is capable of is unfortunately of little use to WinSCP/me.
If you want the custom line height, vote for it in the tracker.
