Don't know if you want it but there is a new version of Google Earth out now V6 with a better interface for street view.

Been trying it and it's a lot better than the old one.

Thanks will have a look.
Restore point first I think!

  muddypaws 10:48 02 Dec 2010

Can you give a link to the freeware v6 please.
I can only find the one to log into.
Is this a beta?

It is a beta and beware unless you untick the boxes you get Chrome and it sets Chrome as the default browser.
Download click here
It is not available as an update via Google Earth (on my system) and the link from Google home page is broken.

OK --got it.

'Doesn't Google Maps search do all that Google Earth does?'
Wouldn't know.
So where has my Street View gone?

  Woolwell 11:20 02 Dec 2010

It is just like Google Maps now with the peg man to drag to the spot where you want Street View.

I should have read this thread before I installed it. Missed the bit about Chrome. It is still the same out of date Google Earth with a view of my house that is at least 7 years out of date.

Now where is the uninstall button?

  Woolwell 11:27 02 Dec 2010

You get some more layers in Google Earth but most I suspect are rarely used. Google Maps probably does what most want.

  Woolwell 11:27 02 Dec 2010

It still uses the same data hence out of date maps and photos.

Be careful un-installing. Will lose any saved info.
Found the street view after reading the instructions!
