Ausus, 64bit, i7 processor laptop (2016) with Windows 10 automatically updated

 

Within the past week due to what I can only assume was a  Windows update, my folders now have this godawful preview panet that hides all the other columns I frequently use and want to see, (examples: the size, the length, the date modified, etc)  There's even a player in there for mp3s and presumably videos as well.

 

I can't figure out how to get rid of it, or if that's not possible, at least move it over further to the right so I can see the information I use.  Maybe there are some people who like this feature but I absolutely HATE it and want it gone.  At least give us a choice and don't make it a requirement whether we like it or not.

 

PLEASE  PLEASE  PLEASE tell me how to make it go away!!  Thank you so much.

Open up a File Explorer window.  Change to the View tab.  Click on Preview Pane right under Home to deselect it.

 

The preview pane used to cause all kinds of issues with Microsoft Office Products.  I prefer it off myself.

Thank you so much for your rapid reply.  However, I'm so technologically blonde I don't know exactly what a "File Explorer Window" is.  Where do I find it?  I have Office 2010.

 

Thank you very much.

Then follow Killroy's instruction to open the View Tab..

Sorry misssbb, I try and make things as simple as I can.  The link provided by saw101 shows you how to open File Explorer.

Thank you so much.  I use this all the time but never knew what it was called.  It took quite a while to do it because I didn't have it opened in the full screen mode, and that Preview Pane option isn't visible when you're in the smaller view.   Never would have figured it out without you, Thank you so much.
