Preview/details pane won't go away!

Q: Preview/details pane won't go away!

A long story short is that my cat ran over my keyboard and now all my folders have a preview/details pane I can't get rid of. I read it could be removed by going to Folder Options, General, Use Classic View. Well guess what, there is no classic view! I included two screenshots to show my problem.

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.

Having decided to use Vista's Mail/Contacts/Calendar, I was quite excited to see that when I hovered the mouse over the Extra Large Icon of a contact, all of his details appeared in the right hand side preview panel ...... for a moment!

Now that capability has disappeared altogether!

I have checked under Organize x Layout that the Preview Panel is checked but it remains blank all the time!

What have I (it) done to remove this handy feature?
........... but there's more ................. the contact's name comes up say michael smith.contact but I only want Michael Smith to show (not the word "contact").
When I try to rename it to a straight Michael Smith, Vista gets all upset and starts tellimg me that it probably won't work anymore if I persist!!

There's gotta be a way to rename these contacts!

I was wondering if you know if there is a way to improve Vista's Video Preview on the Details Pane.

The problem I see is that Vista shows the very 1st second of video, while Windows 7 shows the 4th. That's why many of the video previews on the details pane show a black screen on vista instead of actual video.





If anyone else has the answer, I will be really grateful.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? 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). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

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?

Hello,

I've screwed something up in my Windows 7, 64 Bit Version, and hope someone here can help me.

Previously I could preview .ttf Font files in the Preview Pane of Windows Explorer just by clicking on them. I could also see what the font would look like on the actual Font Icon.

However I discovered I COULD NOT view an .otf Font file so I decided to look around and find out how to get the .otf files to also preview, this is when I got into trouble.

I changed both of the file associations (.ttf and .otf) to be viewed by the Windows Font Viewer and now I can't preview any fonts. I get a generic message that they are not valid font files but they are.

Also now all the Font Icons are a blue "A" with a little magnifying glass on it instead of the previous one that looked like the actual font.

I tried reversing what I did but even though Windows 7 is still showing Font Expert as a suggested program to use, it won't let me check the little box to ALWAYS use that program.

I don't know if the previous Font Icons in Windows Explorer were due to Font Expert or if that was just something Windows Explorer showed.

I'd love to have my PREVIEW PANE back in the font display as it showed what the font would look like larger.

If someone can help me I'd be most appreciative.

Thanks so much.

Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:

* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options
* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'
* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosen

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

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?

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

One of the more useful features of both Vista and Windows 7 is the inline "Preview Pane" of Windows Explorer.

On little quirk I've discovered in Windows 7 is that when you resize a Windows Explorer window, the Preview Pane is resized also, in favour of the file lists. However, I like my preview pane a specifc size.

The follow method is one workaround I used with success:Click the "Hide Preview Pane" icon in the upper right corner (to the left of Help) of Windows Explorer
Resize the Windows Explorer window to how you want it
Click the "Show Preview Pane" icon in the upper right corner (to the left of Help) of Windows Explorer
Has anyone found a way (either via a UI Setting, or a Registry entry) to keep the Preview Pane a fixed size, so that the above workaround does not have to be used?

I just discovered you can hit ALT + P to show a preview pane. What useful things do you guys get out of this function?

I noticed it shows album art for some mp3. Does anyone know where it is getting this picture from?

One kind of neat thing it does is show off how detailed icons are. Noone ever really gets to see that level of detail on them, so now the artists work can be seen more.

I remember when icons were barely more than colored dots, like 16X16 or something.

That's a new one for me too! Is usually keep the preview pane on permanently, but do occasionally turn it off when I use Screen Snap on two explorer windows.

The mp3 album art displayed in the preview pane is embedded in the mp3 file itself, inside the ID3v2 tag.

You can read the tutorial I wrote on how to do this yourself: Windows Media Player Library Album Art

16x16 icon bring back some memories from my days with Windows 3.1, when icons where only 16x16 and 32x32 in either 2 or 16 color modes...

If I remember correctly, starting from Vista, can include a 256x256 PNG image also.

I have looked everywhere. I just upgraded from Windows 7. I use Explorer ++ but it has limitations.
I have no use for a Preview Pane.

Thx.

A:Can you get rid of the Preview Pane in Windows 10?

I don't know what explorer ++ is, but here is how to turn off the preview pane: Preview Pane - Show or Hide in Windows 8 File Explorer

Disable 'permanently': Preview Pane - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

(Works w/ Win10)
