The new finder icon view is weird...

I'm not sure I like the new icon view in finder now. There's a new pane on the right side of the window, that shows you details of whatever icon you click on. Is there no way to get rid of that? You can drag the window divider to get rid of it but it just comes back when you open another folder. I looked through View Options, but didn't see anything :(

I don't have Mojave installed yet, but in older versions of Mac OS, you could select View > Hide Preview from the menu bar to toggle that on and off. Command-Shift-P is the shortcut. Does that still work in Mojave?
