During this learning process I somehow lost the Windows Explorer Default Pane to the Left of the window (it used to show System Tasks/Other Places/Details in separate panels).I can still get Search and Folders by pressing the buttons in the tool bar but when both are de-selected I only have a large window with no sign of the original panel.Please can someone tell me if it is possible to recover this information as I found it very helpful. If so can you also tell me how to do it in simple terms.Many thanks. johndrew 11:43 16 Nov 2005 Many thanks, Skyver. It`s so easy when you know how (sigh).
