A simple setting in Drive interface lets you tweak the way folders & files are presented.
In Google Drive you can change the setting in the UI to show as comfortable, cozy or compact.
There’s a similar setting in Gmail too.
It’s best to have a play with each setting and see which suits you best.
Compact gives more data but less white space between the lines; comfortable gives max whitespace; while cozy is somewhere in between.
You might choose different settings on different computers, such a s large Desktop Monitor or a smaller Laptop screen.
