Hi. so i have vista bizness. works fine most of time.
this is my siutation. For example. I have a folder say on my desktop... I open it and hilight a file, say a pdf, in the preview pane on the right hand side, the cover or first page shows up... yeah. now i try that again with another folder same from an external hard drive (seagate) and.. nada nothing at all, and then sometimes it wil show up on the bottom in the details pane but thats so small cant read anything. Ive been into the properties, tried this that, rebooting... nada.. help please?

Each window you open (regardless of which drive) has it's own layout settings.
When there's no preview-pane visible, in the toolbar click Organise >> Layout >> Preview Pane

Hi. thanks for the reply. I have tried that. I've backed out so that I see all the hard drives (5) and go into properties. I go into each folder on the hard drive then go to organize, and make sure it shows thumbnail not icon. Right now the problem seems to be that its inconsistent. Lets say for argument sake that i have 50 pdf ebooks. Im trying to rename them as they are all using their isbn numbers.
the detaill pane at the bottom shows the first page or cover page, say 50% of the time, the preview pane... nothing. go to another folder, the opposite. Im double checking my settings to both folders...
frustrating... let me know if you come up with another ??? thanks again
