Hello guys,

Normally, you should be able to size the preview pane how you like, then close the window to have it remembered.

If that's not working for you, then you might see if resetting all folder views back to default and trying again may help.

Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

Hope this helps,

Most annoying bug in Windows 7 imo.

I created a thread in the past. Still awaiting a patch but tbh can't see it coming :S.

I gave up using preview pane and tbh I've got used to not using it now. I just have change to view icons instead having list if I need to find a particular file.
