Info pane - On the Bottom?

Question: Info pane - On the Bottom?

Is it possible to move the info pane to the bottom of Explorer windows, similar to Windows 7? Seems easier to read for music files especially, rather than having long word wrapping for artist/album titles and so on.

Preferred Solution: Info pane - On the Bottom?

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.)

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.

Answer:Possible to display details pane on bottom?

Was just thinking the same thing. Here is how my Win7 workstation looks (about perfect to me! Note Classic Explorer is also running).


...and in Win10. The preview thumbnail image in the details pane cannot be resized (larger).

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits with a monitor in portrait.

For that reason I would like to get the preview pane in Explorer at the bottom of the screen for having a readible preview for example of a pdf (because the new 16:9 screen are getting so low, and thus so narrow in portrait).

Is this possible.

In that way one could also choose to have a filmstrip of the pdf :

- Landscape monitor : pane right : full pdf view
pane bottom : filmstrip of pdf pages.

- Portrait monitor : the opposite

Hi,
I must apologize in advance for any forthcoming ignorance, as I am a forum newbie. Using Win8.1, I am trying to relocate the Details Pane in Explorer from the space wasting right side to the well fitting & familiar bottom.

Fix I found is here: How To Move Details Pane To The Bottom In Windows 8.1 File Explorer

Has anyone had any experience in general with this tool? Haven't been able to find out any more jnfo either way othter than the link.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Answer:Win8.1: Reconnect Details Pane to bottom of Explorer

Better use Old New Explorer:

Hello all, I have two MSO2003 problems..

Problem 1:

Win7 HP.. when I start Outlook 03, a popup asks

Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer:

File: Outlook.exe
Publisher: MS
File origin: hard drive on this computer

This has been happening for a while.. I dont remember when it started, but it seems it began when the reading pane thing below started..

Problem 2:

The reading pane will -not- stay on the bottom of the sceen when Outlook starts up.. I change it time and again from side pane to bottom pane and it just doesnt stay bottom when Outlook is restarted..

Any ideas? No viruses, or malware/spyware on the machine.. MSE updates/runs full scan every night.

Thanks, TJ

Answer:Outlook needs approval to start then wont keep reading pane on bottom

Hi TJ

Problem 1: This relates to UAC - User Account Control - settings:
What are User Account Control settings?

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

When should I allow programs to make changes to my computer?

I'll take a look at your other problem and see if I can find anything relevant.

After importing my email from OE6 in to Windows Mail in Vista my Windows Mail crashes everytime it shutsdown. I recieve a message that Windows Mail has stopped working and either have to select Close or it restarts itself.

I have tried removing my Antivirus software (AVG Free 8.0) but it still happens.

I believe it is related to the 'Info Pane' that I now have at the bottom of Windows Mail. This gives me the option to search the internet via Orange.co.uk. If I open 'View\Layout' I have the option for Info Pane as a tick box. However as soon as I move my cursor towards it it changes to 'Search Bar'. It looks like the 2 boxes are on top of each other but I can find no way to access the Info Pane box to turn it off.

I have also tried completely emptying the mail folder and letting Windows Mail recreate the folders but the problem and the Info Bar are still there.

I can't be sure that this is what is causing the problem but I believe it is a very likely culprit.

I really don't want to have to reload Vista in order to resolve such a small glich.
 

Answer:Orange info pane in Windows Mail

Try this:

Click Start button

Type "regedit" in to the search field

When Regedit opens, go to HKeyLocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail

(For backup purposes you can export this tree part in File>Export)

Find the key on the right called "BodyBarPath".

Delete it

Also delete the key refering to BodyBar location/placement

-----

Hope it works, since it worked for me...

I was wondering if there is any way to adjust the width of the info pane in Windows Photo Gallery. For my work I tend to need a lot of nested tags, often with long names, and when I access the list of recent tags, they all end up running off the screen. I can't think of any reason for the info pane to be fixed at such a narrow width. Is there ANY way I can change it to make it wider??

How do you activate/deactivate the bar at the bottom that shows info that is being processed and says nifty things like "Done" "Opening page:..." and stuff?
 

Answer:IE bottom info window?

I think you could use one of the system 'tweakers' type of programs. Most of these let you change all sorts of stuff; change the Start button to say "Begin", change IE's title bar to "My Web Surfer", and lots of other stuff. You can try Tweak Genie: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Tweak_Genie_d4740.html or maybe MZ Ultimate Tweak: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Mz_Ultimate_Tweaker_d5522.html or maybe RegTick: http://www.majorgeeks.com/RegTick_d2710.html or RegToy: http://www.majorgeeks.com/RegToy_d4997.html There's lots of others in the All In One downloads section here at MajorGeeks. You can also try IE7 Tweak: http://www.majorgeeks.com/IE_7_Tweak_Utility_d5512.html if you're using Internt Explorer 7. There's another IE tweaker I've used in the past, but I can't seem to find it. I have the setup file on my PC; it's called IEtweak 2 and the home page for it is in Polish. If I find a link for it, I'll post it.

Hello all,

I must have hit a wrong button or something because as of yesterday, an information strip about 3/4 of an inch wide is all the way across the bottom or every page, in every program and on every internet page. It interferes with things I am trying to do or see. It is not the task bar, it is above that.

Say I go to My Pictures, the info bar at the bottom of the screen gives me info on any pic I mouse over, but it covers and makes unavailable the line that lets you spell out which picture you wish to open or save.

I thought this was what is called a status bar, but when I search online, it says that is the URL address and is at the top of the page. I don't want to do anything to that.

I would like to know what this info bar at the bottom or my screen is called, and how to get rid of it! It is probably something very basic and I will feel like an idiot when I find out what I did to activate it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dustman

I had to manually find all related files to OE6 to delete it so it would reinstall. Then the updates. Now nothing shows up on the preview pane or when I open the email. I can use Outlook instead but what is wrong? The only view of the message is in properties: details: message source.
 

Answer:Solved: OE has empty preview pane, open pane

1. With Outlook Express closed, go to Start>Run
2. Type in: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll (with the space after "regsvr32")

4. Open OE and see if things are fixed

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?

FYI I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro.

Answer:Windows Explorer: Navigation Pane and Preview Pane Bug

Try Explorer++ and see if you get the same problem.

Need to enable "Folders" view.
If it works then you can rule out problems with system files and it's probably a buggy shell extension.

Is it possible to have no Nav Pane when opening a Desktop folder, but have Nav Pane when opening Win Explorer? Like it was in WinXp/Win98/Win95?
When I disable Nav Pane, it disappears for Desktop folders and Windows Explorer.

I think the answer was 'no' for Win7.

I installed Classic Start Menu hoping one of it's features could do it. If it does, I've not been able to enable it. Other than that, Classic Start Menu is a super improvement.

You all take care,

I am getting pop ups at the bottom, bottom right and left side of my screen.  They just seem to pop up randomly and frequently.  Highly annoying.
 

Answer:Pop ups at bottom and bottom right of screen

Most likely these popups are the result of recently installed updates,  free program(s) or add-on(s) in either browsers or programs such as Skype.
 
Using Firefox or Google Chrome browsers with Adblock Plus add-on may block the ads.
 
The two programs linked below have success in finding and removing adware. Allow them to remove whatever they find.

You should check your add-ons/ extensions in your browser(s) for unknown ones or that you have not intentionally installed.
Disable or attempt to uninstall them.
 
If the above doesn't solve your problem, post a new topic in the Am I Infected.........forum along with the scan results of the two programs.

Deleting the registry fixes it only temporarily until it is added again. I'm not sure what program is creating it or how to fully stop it. Any help would be appreciated! Also, yes I do have some pirated games but these are purely for demo reasons as I always purchase after trying them, although I did not download any around the time this started happening.

Now I know that this topic has been posted recently as well, but I haven't been able to clear it myself, unfortunately. When I launch Win7 Chrome boots with a website (sd-steam.info ) that directs me to zodiac-game.info. I've looked through my reg files and found on Run > there is a file under my user name stating ''explorer.exe st-steam.info''. Deleting this helps, but temporarily as it always comes back shortly after
( it seems to come back when a black /cmd/ screen pops up for a slight second ). Restoring my pc to a point prior to the downloads didn't seem to help either. I've a few pirated games on this pc, but nothing too recent. I hope it won't cause an issue that the reg file under Run has been deleted ( in hopes of repair ).

Greetings friends! Can someone please help us remove this "SD-Steam.Info" problem that's on our computer? This is what happens.
 
-> Upon turning on the computer, a browser will open up leading to "SD-Steam.Info" or sometimes "Zodiac-game.info" site.
 
So far the temporary solution that we were able to come up with was block SD-Steam.Info and Zodiac-game.info via the host files. Because of this, even if something tries to open the browser (we use Chrome), it would only display a blank page and go nowhere. 
 
Unfortunately, whenever we use Malwarebytes to remove it, the redirecting problem comes back and gets detected after restarting the pc. In other words, it somehow still manages to resurrect itself or re-create itself. 
 
We also tried deleting the entry of SD-Steam.Info from the registry via regedit, but just like before, it keeps coming back everytime the computer's restarted.
 
Someone suggested "Farbar" and from what we've seen, that one seemed to work with others who have this similar problem. Unfortunately, since Farbar is new to us, we don't know how to properly use it and we don't want to mess with it. Can you please help us use Farbar in order to eliminate this redirecting problem?

Yesterday I bought a new mother board for my PC my Processor model is AMD Athlon II X3 440 Triple Core Processor, but after changing Mother Board in system information it's showing my Processor as AMD Phenom II 4 B40 four core processor. I don't know why it is showing like this. Is this dangerous for my hardware? I used AM2N68-AM PLUS before and now I changed M5A78L-M LX. Except this every thing else is perfect.

Answer:Processor info is showing wrongly in system info after changing MB

It's not dangerous, but I believe you can get it to display correctly. All you have to do is open Device Manager, right-click each entry for the CPU and choose Uninstall. When you're finished, reboot and then open Device Manager up when it's done rebooting and check the CPU again. It should be showing up correctly after that, but if not then we'll go from there.

ever since I got my lumia 520 (march 2014), I've updated it many times (and now the current version is 8.10.14219.341) but extras+info app shows the Amber update each time. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem before or knows the answer to it.
thank you in advance.

Answer:Why extras+info won't show the correct update info?

That version is Windows OS. Amber is the firmware version, another number.
I'm guessing you are on the Developer Preview to get the OS update but still be running Amber.
You could try the Nokia Recovery Tool to get at least Cyan.

Hi!
 
So I am having this problem too since few days. After starting my PC, firefox opens with sd-steam.info and redirects to zodiac-game.info after few seconds. I do have few pirated games but nothing changed and I do not installed anything recently.
 
My observation:
 
There is a regedit entry called sd-steam.info, if I delete it and restart my PC, the pop up is gone but randomly the entry keeps comming back at a point. There is also  a taskeng.exe (or something like that) pop up for a sec it is just black and says nothing but it is gone really fast. I think after that the regedit entry is also back.
 
I tryed multiple malware removing tools already but there are no hits.
 
I know that the internet is full of this right now but I can not find a working solution. So my questions are:
 
What is this? Is this damaging my files and causing more problems or just an advertisement?
 
How can I fix it and remove it completely?
 
Sorry for not the best english. Please help!

I upgraded my PC from an old Pentium Celeron to an AMD Athlon 64 3200.
When I checked System Info, the processor was correct but it showed 512 mhz at first then went up to 1.00 ghz. The system should read 2.00 ghz as it has in the past.
Does this reflect the actual speed? Why would it be less if this is accurate?

Hi Guys
After not being on the internet 4 ages i'm now trying 2 do some research on the net. For this purpose i'v bought the latest version of Norton AV and have set it automatically update itself.
I have now just received a warning titled Messenger Service and was wondering if any of u cud help me understand it better. The warning says:

Message from SECURITY MONITOR to WINDOWS USERUSER [sic] on 26/01/2005 15:55:10
Important Windows Security Bulletin
=====================
Buffer Overrun in Messenger Service Allows Remote Code Execution, Virus Infection And Unexpected Computer Shutdowns
Affected Software:....
Your system is affected, download the patch from the address below!
FIRST TYPE THE ADDRESS BELOW INTO YOUR INTERNET BROWSER, THEN CLICK 'OK'. THE ADDRESS WILL DISAPPEAR ONCE YOU CLICK 'OK'.
www.updatepatch.info
My Questions are:
- Is this a hoax or from a trusted source?
- If it is a hoax as i presume owing to the strange language used and spelling mistakes, what does one call this?
- [email protected] cud happen by clicking OK?
- Wud u recommend having a look @ the www.updatepatch.info website?
- How does this get on my pc and how can i stop it in future?

Answer:Wud like background info on a warning from www.updatepatch.info

Hi they

Welcome to TSG!

That is bogus. You need to disable Messenger Service:

Click Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Administrative Tools->Services
Scroll down and highlight "Messenger"
Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.
Click the STOP button.
Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar
Click OK

Bear in mind that the fact that these messenger popups are getting through indicates that you have a poorly configured firewall. The Messenger service uses UDP ports 135, 137, and 138; TCP ports 135, 139, and 445. These ports are open and vulnerable to hackers and trojans and disabling Messenger Service is only treating the symptoms and not the disease as it were.

Hello, I hope all is well with everyone. I have been meaning to join a good computer forum group as I am interested in education and knowledge in respect to computers.
 
I am having an issue in my new household that I am not very comfortable with, I rented a nice room in a house with 4 other people, separate tenants. There are two individuals though I do not want to judge or anything but come across in every way, sketchy to say the least. I get along with them both so to speak, the one guy I talk with everyday, have coffee with, socialize etc. the other, not so much yet and I have the intuition to say he could be a little schemer if you will. 
 
Putting that aside, history lesson over lol, as I do not want that to cloud/effect the judgement of advice or help. 
 
Me along with 3 of the other tenants are connected wireless to the internet, these two individuals mentioned above have felt the need to feed Ethernet cables directly from the router through the ventilation system to there rooms. I found this to be a little suspicious, really no need for it, the one guy I talk with everyday and socialize with is a big gamer so I kind of understand his want to be connected to the land line.

Hi, I recently started getting occasional popups using FireFox (on websites such as CNN.com) for a fake RegistryDefender program and also advertisements for adult websites. When I try to X out some of these ads, a dialog box pops up asking if I really want to cancel or not; at that point I end the process in task manager rather than risking further infection. The website at the bottom of the popup window is cpv.servefeed.info at first and then changes to something else and brings up the false Registry Defender ad; I'm not sure if there are different addresses for the adult website ads.

I've been reading up about this on yours and other boards and and think I almost definitely have a tricky malware of some kind. I have only used FireFox on my computer lately, so I'm not sure if its simply a FireFox issue? I've run MBAM and Norton Security Suite scans with no results. Was thinking about using Norton Power Eraser, but I figured that might cause more damage and professional help would be preferable.

I've got another CPU in the house connected to the same router I get internet for this computer, so I also am wondering if my other PC is at risk of being infected by being connected to the same router? Another issue I've had the past few days is my internet going out on my PC (I use a wifi router on my mother board to get internet); I thought this might be my mobo overheating/breaking, as powering down the computer completely and restarting has always...

Question: Detail pane

Hi,

This is my first thread in this forum.

I have just upgraded Vista -> 7 and Windows Explorer is driving me crazy.
What I do is following:

1. I choose a folder i Navigation Pane and Detail Pane is only showing File name in a narrow column.
2. Then I customize the Detail Pane ... detail view, more columns, column width ... and so on
3. Drag the Name column so I can see all the columns
4. Fine ... everything looks OK
5. Close Window Explorer and restarts it again
6. The customization for the detail pane are there ... but the column witdth is so narrow that I only can see File name
7. I have to drag the column witdth every time to see the other colums ... very annoying

Answer:Detail pane

in seven,there's no more "remember folder view option" . I don't know why they removed it. which means every time you get to that folder,you need to change it again. and out.again.

Question: Preview Pane

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?

Answer:Preview Pane

Yeah, I'm not to crazy about that one myself. I usually end up just manually dragging the Preview Pane line over.

Question: Navigation Pane

Is it better for me to work under "libraries" or under "computer"?
I am trying to clean up a mess that was made by a computer repair guy. He did something which caused my files and folders to be relocated into incorrect areas - even some of my pictures are upside down.

Question: Navigation Pane

Can anyone tell me how to get the folders in the navigation pane of file explorer to expand to show the sub folders. If I right click the folder, 'Expand' is greyed out. This has only happened since the AU.
Thank you

Answer:Navigation Pane

Hello John,

You might see if an option in the tutorial below may be able to turn on expand to current folder in the navigation pane for you. It's the same in Windows 10.

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask how can i change this pane to the blue-ish original one.

Yes i apply visual styles, maybe i replaced it and didn't know it.

Thanks

Answer:How can i replace this pane with the original

Depends on how you apply those styles. If you use theme resource changer, all you'll have to do is apply a different theme that has the correct folders in place and that panel will change. If you've patched your system manually or with a patcher, the image you've pointed out is in the shell32.dll in the system32 folder, so that will have to be replaced with the original shell32.dll.

All the help I've got time for right now...sorry :-/

Does having your outlook preview pane actually open a message, releasing a virus? Can a virus be part of a message without an attachment?

Or, are viruses generally part of attachments, therefore, only released on your system when the attachement is opened?

Thanks --

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.

Answer: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

recently, my startup pane on the right hand side of MS Word stopped appearing at startup. The option "show startup pane" is checked. i think it may have started happening after i installed the Adobe Acrobat 6 macro. i am quite attached to my pane, does anybody have any suggestions?

Answer:startup pane in word XP

I used to have Office XP but hated it, so the following paragraph is hearsay.

The Task Pane will not be displayed on opening if you have any global templates or add-ins in Word's Startup folder.

(You can find the startup folder path via Tools -- Options -- File Locations).

HTH,

Does anyone know how to get rid of the preview pane when doing a search on IE? I know to uncheck the little box at the bottom, but it seems to recheck evertime I do a new search. I'm finding it really annoying, because it changes the current page that I'm viewing. Anyone know of a way to just get rid of it all together?

Answer:IE Search Preview Pane

Hiya

Moved you to web and Email forum, as you may get more replies there.

Which version of IE are you using? Also, have you tried a repair:

Control panel | AddRemove. Doubleclick Microsoft Internet Explorer. Choose repair, apply and restart.

Regards

I believe that's what it's called, in Windows Explorer there's a load of Shortcuts on the left, how can I edit them, I'd like to remove unneeded things as well.

Also can you modify the shortcuts in the download pane? It has I believe 5 shortcuts on the left which I'd like to customise. In Xp I just used TweakUI to do that, but I don't know anything about Windows 7.

Answer:How does one modify the Navigation Pane?

Make a screenshot of it. And show which ones you want to change.

Do you mean folder %userprofile%\links ?

I understand that in XP Home when opening My Computer or an explorer window, the task pane should be shown on the left hand side by default. By clicking the "folders" button on top you can toggle from folders on the left to the task pane on the left. My problem is that on my computer, it is the opposite. The folders view is the default and I have to click the "folders" button to toggle to the task pane. It is really annoying. Now, I have tried to set it to the task pane and then go to tools/folder options/view/ folder views and click apply to all folders but that does not work. Any suggestions on how to get the task pane back as the default?
