How to change the columns in wordpress admin

One of the things that bugs me about the wordpress admin section is that its not easy to change the order of teh columns displayed, and its not obvious how to change the columns that are shown.

there is a plugin that will let you do this (and if you buy an addon it lets you sort by teh same columns too): Codepress Admin Columns

I can now see the wordcount and the pageviews for each post right from the ‘view all posts’ screen
