The preview pane in Explorer renders text files in Times NR, which really clashes with the rest of the window. The functionality looks like that of WDS, where the formatting of the preview was drawn from a template which was easily editable (if you knew
where to find it).

Does anyone know where to find the template used to render previews of text files in Explorer?Noel

Just for the record, and to wrap this thread up: after installing both SP1 and IE9, the Explorer preview pane now uses the IE font to display files that use the MIME preview handler. It can be changed at Control Panel > Internet Options > General

A fairly simple question:

Has anyone tried to (or found a third party app) that can put the details pane back to the bottom of the File Explorer windows, like it was in 7. It was of great use to me when reading tags and other information. In 8, it just takes needless width space from the windows.

Hello dear forum members,

This is my first post here, and definately a place where I found many answers to my questions, until now.

I really tried anything to make this work, with no result, also found none solutions over the net or here in the forum.

I updated from IE8 to the latest IE9 Beta, and really like the browser except one big thing, the font render. New Vista style fonts are horrible and I want my old IE8 default Tahoma style font renderer for web pages.

After upgrading to IE9, the font settings look identical, but pages are rendered differently. I have tried numerous combinations in the Fonts settings tab with no luck, Accessibility didn't help much too, also tried Software renderer instead of Hardware, clear type ....... all with no luck.

Please tell me how to make my web page fonts displayed look like in IE8, here's what I want:



Here's whay I got at the moment with IE9:



Hope you have the answer, because otherwise I'm stuck with the old IE8. This new font render is genuinly bad, poor Microsoft.

Almost forgot, operating system is Windows 7 Enterprise x64, also tried on Vista x86.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

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.

After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc).

A:Increase font size Windows Explorer Folder Task pane

Have you thought about increasing font size globally? Right click anywhere on the desktop, pick properties, then go to the appearances tab. For font size pick large or extra-large. You may have to reboot.
Also you can use the magnifier tool in Windows to see parts of the screen. Go to start, program, accessories, accessiblity, magnifier. If your friend ends up using it often, go to that same spot in the start menu, right click on magnifier and pick copy. Then go to the desktop, right click, and pick paste.

P.S: Just a technicality: your screenshot shows the "common tasks bar" aka "places bar". The "Windows sidebar" is actually a feature in Windows Vista, which you can see here http://tech2.in.com/media/images/img...ta_sidebar.jpg (it's on the right; it's transparent, so you can't see it, but it's definitely a bar).

If you use the details view in Windows Explorer, you'll note that save for the name field, all other fields are grayed out, likely due to Microsoft finding them "irrelevant" for most users. This is infuriating, as these are things which I refer to regularly, and I find it asinine that I'm expected to squint difficultly at gray text on a white background just to determine specific characteristics of a file. If anyone out there has any idea of a workaround, be it a third party application to hack around with the OS, or a registry value, or a setting which hitherto has escaped my notice, which would rid me of this annoyance, I offer my preemptive thanks and appreciation. Please, let me know if you have any ideas!

# You can select the picture file (that has an image file with a .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif, .tiff, .png, or .ico file name extension) that identifies a folder in Thumbnails view. If you do not select a picture, Windows Explorer uses the folder icon. If you do not select a folder icon, Windows Explorer automatically creates a folder picture for Thumbnails view by using a Folder.gif file in the folder or by using up to the first four image files in the folder. If the folder does not contain any images, Windows Explorer uses the default folder picture.

To find the picture that you want to use to identify the folder, click Choose Picture.

If you want Windows Explorer to use Folder.gif or the first four image files in the folder to identify the folder, click Restore Default. If the folder does not contain any images, Windows Explorer uses the default folder picture.

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.
Up till now I have tried the following solutions:
1. I have reset all the folder options in Vista by going to Folders/tools/reset defaults. (did not work)
2. After resetting the folders, I have also turned on the details pane option under Organize/Layout and the details under the Views. (did not work)
3. Under View, in the tool bar, I went to Customize This Folder and chose the Music Folder Option, All Items etc. (did not work)
4. Then on the Microsoft site, I found this solution ? Open Documents by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Documents., and click a file to apply properties. Then In the Details pane at the bottom of the folder window, click the property that you want to change, type the new property in the Tags.? But it did not work ei... Read more

A:Missing Properties/Tags in Details Pane

hello

Is this only for mp3 files?

You said "when everything was working fine" what happened? did you download a new program? (itunes,vlc)

If it wasn't that long ago, you could try system restore.

Did you use a "registry cleaner" or an "optimizer"?

On the properties window, general tab, what is it set to "open with"?

good luck

I can not change music's rating or other stuff from details pane. In local administrator user I can. Should I change my account type or any help?

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.
