Solved: How to uninstall Windows Double Explorer / Windows Dual Pane Explorer

Q: Solved: How to uninstall Windows Double Explorer / Windows Dual Pane Explorer

I have received an e-mail response from the creator of Windows Double Explorer / Windows Dual Pane Explorer (names seem to be interchangeable) . My apologies for not knowing the proper terms, but I hope anyone will be able to understand what I’m about to describe.

According to information provided by the creator of WDE / WDPE one uninstalls the program by doing the following:

Navigate to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs. There you should find a shortcut file (look for a file not a folder) named Windows Dual Pane Explorer. Select that shortcut file, options click and writedown the target path of the shortcut. Delete the shortcut. Navigate to the location the target path dictates. There you should find both a zipped and an unzipped folder of WDE / WDPE. Delete the folders and also any other shortcut files to WDE / WDPE that you may have created and you&#8217;re done.

Apparently WDE / WDPE is never actually installed. Instead WDE/WDPE initially downloads a folder named WDE Portable 0.3.7.0 zipped. When this download folder is launched it unzips another folder named WDE Portable 0.3.7.0 unzipped into the same directory. During the unzipping process a shortcut is created on the desktop that points back to the unzipped folder. Thusly WDE/WDPE never gets listed into Windows Control Panel&#8217;s Program Files & Features section. That&#8217;s why it can&#8217;t be uninstalled as one might ordinarily expect and why one can&#8217;t find an uninstall file for it either.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My OS is Windows 7. I installed a program named Windows Double Explorer. I want to uninstall it, but I can not find an uninstall for it. The program does not appear in my Programs and Features list, nor does it appear in my Programs directory. Any chance anyone knows how I should go about removing this thing? Thanks

Hi to all, i have a laptop running Windows 7 Professional. The problem is strange and havent had it on any other Windows 7 machine.

If i click the folder icon on the bottom tool bar (windows explorer) then in the left hand pane expand the C drive then right click on any folder it instantly displays a dialog saying Explorer has experienced a problem and needs to close, windows is
looking for a fix for this problem (cant remember exact wording) then Explorer.exe restarts. This happens on the local C drive and Network drives. 
I though it could be a permissions problem so have taken ownership of all files & folders on the C drive which made no difference, i have removed the laptop from our server / domain and it is still the same / no change.
Can anyone shed any light on this problem or offer any ideas on fixing it? the laptop is only a few months old and is i5 / 4GB RAM Dell machine running Windows 7 Pro SP1 office 2003 Pro, checked for virus & adware & all clean.

A:Explorer.exe crashes when righ click on item in left pane on windows explorer nothing in system logs, explorer.exe restarts.

The faulting module (Fault Module Name: SHELL32.dll) shell32.dll is a Windows system file however the file that is actually causing the crash may be a third party file which from the symptoms
may be a third party context menu handler.
The following link has some info and a download to ShellExView which you can use to selectively disable third party context menu handlers to find out a problematic one:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm
You could try disabling all non-Microsoft context menu handlers and then, if the problem resolves, re-enable them one at a time to see which one was the problem.
BTW, the error should be logged in the Event Viewer Application log as a Application Error involving explorer.exe

Been grappling for some time to customizing the right pane of either Win7 or Win10 (not sure if they respond the same) to allow permanent column and column title arrangements. Ideally I would like to apply such attributes to a specific folder and all it's sub-folders. An example is below:
I would also love to be able to set these columns as fixed widths, but this is not as important as the specific columns themselves.

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix this?

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.

You know, I would really love a dual pane option for Explorer.Lots of times (most times) when managing my files, I want a source window and a destination window to drag the files between.  It's such a bore having to open Explorer twice.  Especially when you can't just click the Windows Explorer icon on the new Task Bar a second time, because that simply minimises the Explorer window you've just opened!Instead you have to right-click the icon and choose a different folder in the list.  The new Explorer window pops up over the first one, so then you have to drag the second window clear before you can use them.So now you have this silly sequence:    left-click; right-click, move-the-mouse, left-click; left-click-and-dragPLEASE give us some way of handling this better.  Either:1/ An optional dual-pane view for Explorer (like Director Opus, et al, offers)2/ A single click way of opening two, non-overlapping Explorer windows (my preferred option)Is there any chance at all of this, do you think?

Hi, I've been having this problem for a while now. I don't know when it started/what caused it tohugh

When I double click mp3-files Winamp doesn't react. However, the single window freezes. I can open and use another window while the other is frozen, which means explorer.exe doesn't crash totally...

This is not true for .avi files or .doc files though. I seriously am at a loss here.

It might have something to do with the problems I've been having with Opera for a long time. Every 3 minutes or so the browser freezes for 5-10 seconds and then goes back to function normally. But it also has total crashes regularly. I've tried reinstalling Opera (deleting it and then doing a new install) but somehow the application setup is still there when I've reinstalled it (favourites, personal bar, etc.)

A:[SOLVED] Windows Explorer shell freezes when double clicking files

Hi Norwegian and welcome to TSF !

Do you have that problem with all files you double-click or only with certain file types ? If it's only with mp3-files then uninstall/reinstall winamp.

Do you have SP2 and all the latest critical updates from Windows update ?

Are there any process in the task manager (press ctrl+alt+del and go to the processes tab) that are taking some cpu usage when this happens ?

Go to the device manager : start => run => devmgmt.msc. Check "show hidden devices" in the view tab and tell us whether there's any device with a warning sign next to its name.

Run the event viewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Search the different sections for errors and report about what you find.

How much free space do you have on your drives ? Have you defragmented them recently ? Go to start => Run and type chkdsk x: /F /R (replace x with the drive's volume letter), answer no when it asks to unmount the volume then yes to scan the drive at startup and reboot the computer. Do this for all your local drives.

What are your computer specs ? See the link in my sig about posting system specs. Enter the BIOS at startup (repeatedly press del or search for a message telling you which key to press to enter setup) and search for a harware monitor or pc health screen. Report what your cpu temp, fan speed and voltages are.

If you don't want it to load all folders, ( which takes time);

there are other tutorials there on this and similar matters.

By the way, that window is known as the "Explorer Navigation Pane", "Sidebar" refers to something else.

If I expand a folder that's down towards the bottom and there's a lot of subfolders, then everything moves up to make room for the subfolder list. That's as it should be. But about the time I go to click on one of the subfolders, the whole list moves down again and you have to scroll back down to get where you want. After that, it stays put. It's an bug/annoyance that I hope someone gets fixed.
Just my 2 cents worth.

Maybe this has been discussed before, but I'm noticing that the navigation pane in Windows Explorer doesn't automatically scroll left and right anymore in the latest builds. Nor is there a horizontal scroll bar on that pane, like there was on XP. So if you have folders that are nested more than four or five deep, the only way to see the deeper levels is to drag that pane wider.

This is happening in both 7048 and 7057. Are others seeing this? Is this a bug or are they changing the way horizontal scrolling works and it's just not finished?

A:Windows Explorer Navigation Pane Autoscroll

I couldn't say about the navigation pane as I always disable all the extra windows options for the explorer windows. As for the horizontal scroll - if I understand you correctly, that is still there but you have to scale the window horizontally until there is less than one tiles worth of space. Otherwise the icons just auto tile themselves.

Hello SevenForums, I am having a particularly annoying problem with my favorites shortcuts in my navigation pane. I have no idea what I actually did but I know I accidentally altered the "Links" file in C:/(Users)/(MyUser)/Links. Ever since then my "Favorites" shortcuts in the navigation pane are completely empty. I cannot add new links either.

I have tried everything from the simple "restore favorite links" option to manually editing the registry value to be sure in included the "IsShortcut" entry. I have tried the techniques from several different threads on this very website. I have tried every single option from each one of these tutorials:

Favorites Empty in Navigation Pane - Fix
Favorites - Restore Default Favorite Links in Navigation Pane
User Folders - Restore Default Location
Default File Type Associations - Restore

Nothing has fixed the problem.

In addition to this all the sections in the navigation pane that used to independent (IE - Libraries, Computer, Network, ETC) are all now contained under the "Desktop" category. This is a recent issue and not nearly as maddening as the favorites issue I described above.

So priority one for me is to fix the favorites links. If anyone can shed some light on the situation I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Windows Explorer Navigation Pane Problems

Hello brewersomething, and welcome to Seven Forums.

All of your default Favorites are there in the right pane when you have Favorites selected. It appears that you need to expand open Favorites in the navigation pane by clicking on the small white outlined triangle just to the left of Favorites.

It looks like you have your navigation pane set to "show all folders". Unchecking this option using the method in the tutorial below will have your navigation pane show in separate groups again.

Hello,

I just noticed Win Explorer does not refresh the right pane as I navigate up/down a list of folders via arrow keys in the left pane. It used to make rapid visual read of folder contents possible. Can that feature be switched back on?

I've seen this reported elsewhere few years ago but I cannot find it on this site.

A:Windows Explorer right pane does not match left folder

Not sure if that's possible. Use the up or down button until you have highlighted the one you want. Then press Enter or Space to update the pane to the right. You use the left and right buttons to collapse/expand sub folders.

I find Space the best and fastest option since you use both hands. One to navigate and the other to refresh the right pane.

I have looked at everything thoroughly and cannot figure out how it happened or how to get the information back. If I click on the folder button on the tool bar the whole pane will close and click again and the pane appears but is empty. Has anyone run into this issue using Windows 2000. I did some looking in Microsoft knowledge base but they were talking about Win98 and not Windows 2000 and they were talking about Internet explorer and this is happening in Windows Explorer any help with this would be much appreciated.

I have two computers. One computer has Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and the other has Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit. I have the latest Adobe reader on both computers. The preview pane is set the same way on both and so are the settings for the Adobe reader. On the 32 bit OS I can preview anything in the preview pane. It reads .jpg, .pdf. Word documents.. all of it. On the 64 bit the preview pane always shows me pics, sometimes previews word docs but will only ever show me the adobe icon in the preview pane. It never allows me to see what is in the document. I have checked, double checked, and triple checked all the settings and everything is the same except I still can't preview pdf documents in the 64bit operating system. Can anybody help?

I was wondering how Windows determines what gets displayed in the navigation pane?

I saw this:
This PC in Navigation Pane - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Drives in Navigation Pane - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

But that is just for the PC.

At work, I got the Quick access, Dropbox, OneDrive, This PC, and Network.

Co-Workers computer got all that, and a shortcut to his D Drive. (I didn't).

At home, I got same as my co-worker, with the D drive shortcut (and ignoring my 4 other hard drives)

These are not removable drives, these are regular fixed drives. (At work, C is SSD, D is a mechanical drive), at home, C/D are my SSD, the other 3 are mechanical drives), all plugged into the motherboard.

I know according to the tutorial above, it looks like I can add all my hard drives to the navigation pane, but is there a way to add only certain drives?

Can you add a button to open and close the Windows Explorer navigation pane in Windows 7?

The toolbar button to toggle the Navigation Pane (and up directory) in Windows XP seems missing in Windows 7. I've been unable to find an option to bring it back nor have I found a plug-in which enables it.

Anyone have a way to let me quickly open and close the Nav Pane?

thanks,

A:Can you add a button to toggle navigation pane in Windows Explorer?

The only way I know of is to use third party software. Perhaps someone else will come up with a way to do it manually.

You can add a button to toggle the navigation pane on/off using:

WinAero: Explorer Toolbar Editor

(need to have network http.sendRefererHeader enabled for the download to work) - if you've disabled it previously.
