Hello everybody,

I just want to know how to get rid of the my pictures collapse/expand tab in my documents as shown in the picture. How do I hide this tab without deleting it? Thank you for your help.

Note: I figured it out.

Here are a few suggestions. After you try each one, close your Windows Explorer and then reopen it:

Click Organize, Layout, and try UNchecking Preview Pane.

If that doesn't work, in the Layout section, see if there is any other link checked that might control the My Pictures section.

You can also try clicking (and/or right/clicking) the little 4 arrow in the header of the My Pictures section to see if that brings up any control to enable/disable the section. Also try clicking the blank area of the header.

Also see if that brings up a Properties link, which might also give you an enable/disable option.
