    I do not want to see a large space to the right of my photos & files in file explorer. I want to see the full space filled with them. I have been searching for hours for the mythical "General Tab" which supposedly contains the key but it doesn't seem to exist. Does anyone know if this display is possible?

    Click on 'View' on the top bar. In the resulting ribbon click on 'Details pane" to toggle the Details pane on/off. Click on 'Navigation pane' and in the resulting small window select or un-select 'Navigation pane.'

    It worked. i don't know how but the last time I tried selecting the navigation & details panes, clicking one would deselect the other. I could never get them all off at the same time.
    Thanx
