disable file preview column in a folder

They are eating my work space. I have absolutely zero use for that eye candy. How to destroy the useless feature once and for all?

Hello Jones,

I'm not sure of what you are referring to exactly. If you meant the "Preview Pane", then this will help show you how to turn it off. If not, then could you post back a screenshot of it?

Preview Pane - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
Shawn

TY Brink for swift and precise reply I now see that I could've found this from help and support under "working with files and folders" using search "preview". How did I miss that
