Windows 10: Folders in libraries appear as long strips Solved

    Folders in libraries appear as long strips


    Suddenly, all the folders in my libraries are appearing as a long strip down the left side of the page with a scroll bar instead of fitting across the entire screen like they used to. I must have hit a wrong setting somewhere but can't figure out how to undo this weirdness. Please help.

    I tried manually dragging the margin to the right and it expanded somewhat, but there is still a blank area on the right. It says Select a file to preview. Sorry. I've never been able to post a screen shot.

    I think I figured this out now. I had clicked the preview button under view for some reason and only had to click it again. Thank you.

    If you press Ctrl and PrntScr together you should be able to copy an image of what is on your screen to the 'clipboard'. Having done that try opening Windows Paint, and then at the top left of Paint select 'paste' where you can paste the clipboard image into Paint. Then save the file (top left where it says 'File').

    Then come back here and use the 'insert image' button to upload your image.
