Windows 7: Library Pane - Turn On or Off

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Yeah, it would have been nice. I tried adding the same registry entries into the locations that we discussed for the navigation pane items for this, but no luck with these.

Brink, When I click on the Library pane in Layout as you suggest (Option 1), nothing seems to happen. My display is as the right-hand screen shot that you include. The other three panes will disappear as expected when selected; but not the Library pane. Any thoughts?

Hello Seattlerust, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if Option 2 may work for you instead for now to see if it may be able to reset it so that you can use Option 1 afterwards as well.

Hope this helps,
