My system is up to date so maybe I have some new features, notice how on my open dialog window I don't have anything for preview in the dropdown for organize. I also have things on the button like "embed" and other things that I have never seen before and I can drag the edge to the right to make more room but I can't get rid of the section that says "select file to preview"

Here are a few more screen shots, I know how frustrated it can be when something is suppose to be like you say it is and then it isn't.

here are 2 screenshots

What about dragging the vertical bar on the left side of the preview pane all the way to the right?

Is this a recent thing or has it always been like this. If its a recent thing and it wasnt like this before. I would suggest system restore.

I can disable and enable and have the buttons which you are missing for some reason, in IE.

I know my post doesn't have the solution but it does rule out some possiblities.

The windows save dialog, open dialog, or search bar doesn't work.
Hello. When I click "Save as", or "Open" for any dialog that uses the built in windows "Save" or "Open" dialog, it doesn't open. The windows search bar (bottom-left corner click on windows and then start typing) doesn't work either. It won't display any results, or react to my typing. "Save as"...

New window/dialog box not becoming active/top
This is an issue when I am trying to type in a popup window. I type to realize nothing is appearing until I click on it. I was able to temporarily fix this before by unlocking and locking the taskbar, but that is no longer fixing it.
