Possible to display details pane on bottom?

Question: Possible to display details pane on bottom?

is there anyway i can display my details panel on the bottom ? like it used to on win 7?

because windows 10 shows it on right hand side, but it's just taking too much of the space on my screen, it's really inconvenient when you open 2 folders and snap to sides and modify files.

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.)

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!

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

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?

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified.

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.

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.
 

Answer:Solved: Windows explorer details pane for videos problem

Is the folder set as a "Video" type?
Look at the properties of the folder, and there you will see a drop down list for the type.

I would like to see more audio details in win10 file explorer preview pane, especially the channels and bitrate for movies in the *.mkv format. (I would like to see if they include DTS 5.1, languages, subtittles etc.)

Before the latest creators update, this information was shown in the preview pane (along other video-details). Now I can't get it back. Icaros doesn't seem to help in this case.

What can I do?

I found no solution in Windows Explorer's View menu, Options, and Help.

I would suspect it was due to me shutting down some 'process' or 'service' (2 weeks ago), but as far as I can see, all possibly-relevant processes and services are now running.

A related issue was raised by someone else and responded to by me here: Can't Rate Media in Explorer (Vista Home).

Hello, I was wondering about the possibility to increase the images thumbnail size on the details pane in file explorer, and to make the panel maller than allowed by default. Is it possible?
Thank you for your help

Answer:adjust file preview size on file explorer details pane

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer
I do not know of way to make the thumbnail larger in the details pane. It is larger in the preview pane.

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?

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!

Hello,

I've searched quite a lot on this subject but have not been able to find a solution.

In Win 8 Windows Explorer, the preview pane seems to be able to display previews of all file types I really use except the type I use most-- eml email files. Is it possible to get the preview pane to show a preview of an eml file?

In searching the web I ran across reference to an old app named PreviewConfig that I believe was written for Vista, but apparently it does not work in Win 8, although I have not tried it-- kind of fear messing something up.

I have noticed that if I simply manually edit an eml file's extension from eml to mht-- it will be displayed in the preview pane.

I have hundreds if not thousands of eml files saved to disk. I really don't want to change all of them to mht because that eliminates email functionality of the file. Meaning, I would not be able to double-click the file, open it and respond to or forward it as an email message.

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

My sister in Florida uses XP and IE6. When I used her note-book recently, I noticed that the display in the main pane, in other words the images and text in the main pane, filled only about 2/3rds of the pane. The display in the left-hand pane, on the other hand, was perfectly normal. There was no question of curing this by dragging, because that merely changes the size of the pane, not the display in it. Nor does it help to change the font-sizes, because the whole display -- fonts, images and all -- is under-sized.

Can anyone help ?

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum, so I apologize if it's not.

I just installed Windows 7 and have been unable to preview any Office 2003 documents in the Explorer preview pane. This includes doc and excel files. The preview pane just says "No preview available."

I can view gif, txt, xml, pdf, html, etc. In general, Office is working, i.e. I can create and edit Office documents.

On a related note, I would also like to be able to javascript files which are just plain text, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Hi. My problem is slightly different but along the same lines? When I open Explorer, Favorites is displayed at the top of the left column, as desired. However, not all of the folders I have designated for Favoriates is displayed in the left column. When I left click on the word "Favorites," then in the right column the entire list of Favorites folders does display. (Meaning: there's a list of nine folders on the right side, but back in the left column under Favorites only seven are displayed.)

I've tried all of the solutions described above and none fixes this problem. If I try to drag a folder from Right to Left, two things happen: (A) A copy of that folder is created on the right side (so I'll see the original and a version with "(2)" after the name; and (B) on the left side, one of the folders that used to be in Favorites no longer displays.

I don't know why a copy is made on the Right, but the action on the Left leads me to believe that somehow the left column Favorites is set to display no more than seven (7) items, but I can't find where to change that setting.

ANy ideas out there?

Answer:Favorites in left pane does not display all Favorite folders

Hello Kell, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, open your C:\Users\(user-name)\Links folder, and see what you have for shortcuts there. If they are all there, then cut and paste them to your desktop to empty the folder, then copy them back to see if they appear in the navigation pane under Favorites afterwards.

If that doesn't help, then try the tutorial below along with the yellow TIP box if needed.

Z61m has just lost the bottom third of its display! Instead I have groups of vertical lines in random colours ranging from green, sky blue & mauve (it looks like the pattern to a Paul Smith shirt). I've run all the diagnostics & updated the bios/drivers but apparantly there is nothing wrong. I can't help thinking this is related to previous problems: the fingerprint reader stopped working about 6 months into warranty but I left it 'til warranty was about to expire (in case other faults developed) before sending it in. When it was returned, the battery was half full, but once it discharged it wouldn't recharge or work on AC power. Lenovo sent out a new battery but that didn't work at all.I sent the machine back & when it was returned I started getting intermittent pixel problems & the occasional blue screen. By this time I was fed up being without my computer & because the problem was intermittent I decided to put up with it.

Ok Im totally baffled as to what to do. The internet help desk doesnt know what to do, and I cannot find anything out on the problem I am having in microsofts knowledge base. Ok here is what is going on and all that I have tried. A couple of days ago I started having problems with OE in which I was getting a message that read ..Couldnt open address book, OE is not configured correctly please reload outlook express. So on the advice of others I dumped my outlook express and internet explorer. I then under advice from friends of mine who work at an internet help desk, I downloaded and installed the IE5.5 service pak. I installed it and still had the same problems with outlook express. So one of the things that my friends told me to do was to go in and delete my address book and then outlook express will make a new one. I did this and it took care of the error message that I was getting. I can send messages and recieve them but they wont display in the preview pane. Every email now comes in as an attachment and the only way to see them is to click on the attachment then either open it as an html file with IE or test only with word pad. If anyone can help with this I would greatly appreciate it.

The installation box would come up for a moment, a progress bar would indicate that it was installing, and then would finish and dissapear. The research pane, however, would not display any results, no matter what word was used.

Answer:Ms Word 2003 - Thesaurus (research Pane) Will Not Display Any Results

Hi Robert.
Does the spell checker work or is it gone too?
By default, Office will install the "Research" add-on in IE. If nothing else, it should find on-line results, provided the add-on is installed and enabled in IE (Tools>Manage Add-Ons) and a site is selected via the "research options" selection in the lower right corner under the Research pane in Word. There is also the local source options there as well. Take a look.
If worse comes to worse, remove and re-install the office proofing tools.
To do so, select Office in Add\remove. Click the "Change" button.
Select "Add or Remove Features" and click the "Next" button.
Place a check in the "Choose Advanced Customization of Applications" option and click the "Next" button.
Navigate to: Office Shared Features>Proofing Tools>English.
Left click each sub option and choose "Not Available". Click the "Update" button and follow the prompts.
To re-install, go back to the same spot and choose "Run from My Computer" on each of the options.
Insert the cd if prompted.

What causes the display screen to occasionally scroll down to the bottom ?  If I try to move the cursor back up, it immediately returns to the bottom of the screen again.  This happened with my old ThinkPad (T41) and was one of the reasons I got a new T500.  Now, I am experiencing the same thing during my first days with this new system.  Is this a hardware quirk, a "short" of some sort, wrong finger pressure, or what?  It's impossible to do work of any sort when any application will scroll to the bottom and stay there.

I don't really know how to explain this very well.

Towards the bottom-right of my screen, there is a little rectangular area that looks just a little "off" when compared with the rest of the screen. It's right above the area on the right of the taskbar where the message center and language bar, etc. are. It's not like it's a different color, it just seems to be a bit darker than the rest of my monitor, but I'm not even sure if that's how to describe it properly because it's not always like that. It's much more noticeable on dark colors than light, and it disappears completely (seemingly) when looking at a pure white image. It also does not appear if I print screen and paste in Paint. All of my specs are in my profile.

When the system was built would the graphics card have had its own driver software to be loaded? Or does Win XP have its own set of default drivers and it's not necessary to load the manufacturer's?

I have recently upgraded to Firefox 23, but first saw this issue when I still had v22.

I prefer to have PDF files from a URL display in Firefox using its Acrobat plugin.

However, the very bottom of the displayed file, including the bottom end of the scroll bar, is hidden under the Windows taskbar.

The plugin does not allow for any type of controls to be optionally displayed that might provide clues to this issue, and changing FF's zoom setting does not remedy the hiding issue.

The only thing that does remedy it is changing one or more of FF's toolbar settings, but this has to be done every time a URL with a PDF file is opened!

I looked in about:config and couldn't find anything that may lead to a solution although there are settings for browser.taskbar, and pdfjs., but I would be afraid of suggesting anything without knowing what the settings do for fear of bricking your FF browser. I'll look a little harder.

Check in Tools\Options\Applications scroll down to where PDF's are listed and see if yours is set like mine, Preview in FireFox if it's anything different just click anywhere on the listing for PDF's and a drop-down box will open for you to make changes.
You should be able to back out and check the new setting without re-starting FF, if you don't see any changes then go and re-start and check again.

In the meantime you could try: Troubleshooting Firefox issues using Safe Mode, and if that seems to take too long to hunt down the problem you may want to try: Taskbar Auto-hide - Turn On or Off

After uninstalling MS Works and Office 2007 trial versions from a new computer, I installed the Office 2010 beta.
Now the Win 7 Explorer and Office preview panes do not work for doc or docx files or any other Office extentions, xls...etc. The preview pane in Explorer says "No preview available." In Office the Preview pane says "The file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Word (or Excel or..) previewer."
Zips, jpg, and txt files are fine in Explorer.
Is there a registry fix I can try to fix this?
Thank you.

Answer:Windows 7 Explorer preview pane unable to display office extension files

Did you install 2010 logged in on an administrator account? If not log in as an admin and rerun setup.
If you did run as an administrator use the Control Panel >> All Control Panel Items >> Default Programs option to set the file associations.
Good luck.

I find it annoying when I use windows Explorer to browse my files and see folders where my files are not displayed in 'Details'-view.
(Other views are: Icons, Tiles, Content etc...)

How do I set up Windows 8 so that it always displays all foders in the 'Details' -view

Answer:How always display Explorer files in the 'Details' -view?

Hello whitek,

You could use the method in the tutorial below to set a folder view for all folders. You would use General Items in step 1 for "Details".

Folder View - Set a Default for all Folders in Windows 8

Hope this helps,

Hi! Just got a Lenovo T61 7659/CTO from Ebay, and was v. pleased with it at first, but it's now developed a strange jiggly line at the bottom of the screen where the tast bar is. As I'm not much of a techie, I don't really know if it's a hardware or software issue. Here's a link to an image of the fault: jiggling line It seems to be constantly bobbing/jiggling, if that's any help. It's also grown over the space of time since I first noticed it. Was very, very fine at first, but has suddenly deteriorated to about 2mm.  Would be very, very grateful for any suggestions as to what's causing this. The laptop is still under warranty, I believe, so am hoping to get it fixed by Lenovo. Thanks very much in advance for your help. Wendy

Answer:strange jiggly line at bottom of screen/display

it is a failing GPU (you have a Nividia GPU right), this is a known problem. Probably the person whom had this laptop had this problem too, before he sold it off to you.   UNITED KINGDOM 08705-500-900    Message Edited by lead_org on 07-27-2009 10:24 AMMessage Edited by lead_org on 07-27-2009 10:24 AM

Answer:Missing two data tv screens in bottom rh corner of display

Hi dronz

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Right click on the
Taskbar > Properties > General tab
and place a check mark in: Hide inactive icons Click Customize
Locate: Local Area Connection
Look to see if it is set to Always Hide, and change it to Always Show or Hide when inactive.

I keep the Always Hide box unchecked, it annoys me when Icons suddenly leave.

Which updates did you download?

Let us know if that works for you or not.
