Hi, Harry

Show files mode in Change Explorer view is gone in 4.0.1 and later version. This is a part of the redesign in

In v3.0.x, show files mode provides incorrect result in some scenarios.

When you open the multiple changesets now in 4.0.3, you can choose open with "change summary" and this can be seen as Show file mode in old Change Explorer view.

Also, in work flows where change sets would be opened in Change Explorer's files view mode by default, it will open in Change Summary.

Thanks guys for the answers.  I see we can multi-select several change sets between and across baselines.  The menu option was convenient, but this works.  Thanks again for the quick responses.
