    Right panel will not move out of the way

    So it wont move to the right. I have searched all over how to just make it go away but I do not see a method. I found a reg edit that changed it so I can move it to the left. but I need to move it to the right so I can see my details.

    In File explorer, click on the View menu. Towards the left end of its ribbon, you'll see that the Preview pane button is highlighted [the Preview pane is selected]. Click on it again; it will clear and the pane you dislike will disappear.

    The same method applies to the Details pane button that you'll see below it.

    At first when I click on that button it does not do anything. But after I refresh the explorer program it allows me to move it out of the way. Thank you. !

    Refresh problems affect many of us from time to time with no effective remedy except rebooting [mine has been okay for some time now since I started making a point of rebooting each day].

    Just to bowl out the possibility that your earlier attempts to fix the problem have not complicated matters by inducing your Refresh problems, if you made a backup in .reg format of that Registry key before changing it then you could try restoring the keys backed up values. If you don't have a backup then, if you want, you could post a screenshot of the Registry key and I'll compare it to my unadulterated key.
    - You could backup the key in .reg format as it now stands and I'd look through that instead - but, to avoid any misunderstandings later, don't even bother posting a Registry key 'backup' in .txt format because I would not look at it. That format is a pain in the neck.

    If this post is written in Double-Dutch as far as you are concerned then, if you want me to, I can explain about backing up & restoring Registry keys.
