Hi All :thumbsup:
I have a computer running windows xp pro.
The problem I am having is I when I open up a large file I do not have a vertical bar on the right side of the file box.
Here is an example: Attached File  SnapShot_xx.png   77.44KB   21 downloads
As you can see I'm getting three rows of files instead of one row of files.How does one set up to get one row of files.
Can some one let me know how to get the verticale bar to show up on the view box.
I know it's going to be a simple click of the mouse but it's driving me nuts,don't know where to look. Thanks Raner

Hello Raner,

I think you have your Explorer display set to View, List.

Try setting it to View, Details.

P.S. I normally have Explorer set to View, Details, and both scroll bars (horizontal and vertical) are shown in the right-hand pane. When I change it to View, List, I see the same thing you are seeing.

Or have you messed with anything in the registry? If so, then just run system restore ;)

You dont have to do System Restore. Do as M.. has said.

In any folder, in the menu select View -> Icons.
You can also use shortcut : Press Alt+V. Now release all keys and press N
