removing view pane from explorer

  broggs 13:09 07 Sep 2003

When I click on a movie file or picture file in explorer/my computer it appears on the bottom left as a preview.How do I disable this please.

Hit "Media" up at the top.

Now the pane should pop out...

Click Media Options, settings, reset preferred types, Click ok.

Next tme a clip asks to be played click NO (i think) and it should open in media player the full size business.

If you're using Win 98 (and my memory isn't failing) you go to View > As a webpage, untick it.

After clicking Media Options, click "play web meida in the bar" it will remove the tick.

It should be at the bottom of the pane that slides out.

What about: Tools\internet options\advanced untick 'don't play online content in the media bar'? Although meidia options should be where Powerless says. IE6?

Sorry, I mean Windows explorer and my computer, not Internet explorer.

  wildrover 19:54 07 Sep 2003

Oops! Sorry, wires crossed.
