Do the folders revert after doing what I said in post #10?

Is this a folder you created?

If it's a Windows folder, Pictures, Music, etc, they have special properties and can't be changed.

have no idea why the pane is so big though.

Try clicking the Reset Folders button.

I wish I knew mate. Running some diagnostic, an update, sleep or hibernate all may cause various issues.

Glad you got it fixed though.
