What theme do you use?
What theme do you use?
Thats great. Now if I could only get the pictures folder under This PC to actually show me My Pictures folder !
Did you guys with this problem applied any Theme tweaks or changes, or messed with registry settings or applied folder background settings, etc?
All this can be connected to this strange behavior, which can be very annoying. But it is almost impossible to recommend any solution (besides those resets described in tutorial) without knowing what software or tweaks you used.
Thanks for your reply but i can't test anymore, i don't have the PC anymore.
I was able to get the bars to show, but only when using Details as the view setting.
Also when uploading the screenshot seen above.
The storage space bars do show in My PC and the view is set to Tiles.
The screenshot above is how I would like it to look, but I can't seem to get it to do this in file explorer, no matter what I do.
One more thing to try @Geosammy:
Open Explorer and bring focus to it. Set view to desired state (ie. tiles). Then pres Ctrl and scroll mouse wheel...
The look of selected view will change. Report back if this helps
This view type doesn't show the storage space bar.
I still have not been able to solve this issue.
I'm now looking for a way, of possibly seeing if there is something in the registry preventing the storage bars form showing.
Would anyone know what the registry location is, that has the information for the explorer view settings?
Also, if anyone who has the storage space bars present in explorer. Can you post what the registry location is for this view and what it is?
If you followed tutorials posted on first page (resetting folder view), there is one section pointing to the registry key to alter.
Just to be on the safe side (you have original system files) try running command "sfc /scannow" in elevated command prompt. Sorry if you done this already...
I went back to the (resetting folder view) tutorial and followed it again for a 4th time.
lo and behold, I now have the storage space bars back.
I don't understand why this had not worked before?
Not sure, but maybe it has something to do with the recent windows anniversary update.
I'm happy that I finally got those storage space bars back.
Thanks AndreTen for directing me back to this tutorial. I don't think I would have went back to it otherwise.
