    Lost Folder Pane (Vista Home Premium)

    Since Yesterday, when I open Windows Explorer I no longer have a left pane showing the folder tree. I only have the pane showing the contents. I can't find anything that will restore the view I am used to with a left and right pane. How do I get it back?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Go to "View, Explorer Bar", and then Folders.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Try Organize > Layout and tick "Navigation Pane".

    When I click on View > Explorer Bar it just pops up a sub-menu that says "Discuss"! If I click on that it opens a pane below the main pane that appears to be for chatting or something like that! I have noticed that when I open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows & E keys the view looks correct but as soon as I click a folder to make its contents display in the right pane, the left pane disappears. Also, the row below the 'normal' menu bar changes from 5 items to 3 items. It is certainly a puzzle.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Hans, that seems to have solved the problem!

    Thanks,
