    Thanks for the screen shot; makes it very clear what you are describing. :)

    If you select a file it will preview it in the Preview pane (maybe not all types of files). If you'd like the Preview pane smaller and the main area larger drag the divider to the right. If you don't want the Preview pane at all get rid of it (Organize - Layout - remove check from Preview pane).
