A list-view control displays objects in various views and levels of detail. Label every list-view control. Place the label above and flush-left with the control. If the user can manipulate the listed items in any way (including copying), the label takes an access key. Exceptions: List-view controls do not take a label when they:
Comprise a Windows Explorer window
Comprise the results pane in MMC
Place a colon (:) after the list-view control label.
Keep column heading text brief (one or two words). If you have a choice, use a single noun or noun phrase.
