Windows 7: Setting Viewing Area For Opened Files

Setting Viewing Area For Opened Files

Hi:

I open the reg. for my "C" drive. On the left it shows the file folders just fine. Then when I click on a folder I want to open, it displays the files that are stored within that folder on the right hand side. Not a problem there.

My problem is that when the files are displayed (right hand side), I always have to manually widen the area to display all the file information to show such things as the name, date size, etc.

I have looked for a setting that will permanently retain the new setting I made for the viewing area and want it to hold and apply to all my folders but no success.

Can someone please give me a path on how to permanently retain my adjusted wider area setting so that it is applied to each folder and I will not have to manually adjust it every time?

Thanks.

Hello ve6tp,

You might see if using the tutorial below to apply your folde view settings to all folders may work for you.

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink:

Thanks for taking the time to try and help me.

I'm my own worst enemy I guess as I caused my own trouble.

I had the "Preview Pane" turned on. Pretty stupid huh?

All is well now.

Thanks again.
