In the View menu item, click on Explorer Bar, then click to put a check by "Folder" - does that work?

No, it's just a way of referring to the pane in Windows Explorer that normally displays the folder tree.

FINALLY!!!!! I searched this subject for over an hour. My explorer window would not display the explorer bar with those tasks, but I did not know the correct term for the bar that contained them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Unfortunately, when I followed the directions, my computer reset to the standard settings, but I know how to fix that!

:thumbsup:
