When using Windows 10 and you look on the right side of any explorer window you can see under the Search Bar and a thin vertical line. You can resize the Search Bar. You can even resize the Vertical line. However the vertical line will only go over so far and not anymore. This is an incredible waste of desktop space in every explorer window you open. Is there a way to completely get rid of that "properties" window on the right ?

 In Windows 10 we have Internet Explorer and File Explorer.  Please explain which you're talking about and what vertical line and "Properties" window you're talking about.  The purpose of the File Manager, if that's what you're talking about, is so that you can click on something in the left pane and see the properties of it on the right side.  If you're talking about the vertical line between the two, that can be moved to the left or the right, but to totally get rid of the right pane would totally defeat the purpose of the File Manager and render it useless.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

I did not mention a browser window IE, so it must be the File Manager. To totally get rid of the right pane defeats the purpose of File Manager ? I dont see how. The only thing the right pane does is waste a lot of desktop real estate using big icons and telling us the file type and size. I would gladly get rid of the right pane if there were a way.
