    i hate vista. but I gotta work on them cause they break.
    I have a laptop handed off that is "stuck" in terms of the way it displays the file system [Windows Explorer].
    How do I get this thing to display the side-by-side hierarchical view? you know... computer, drives, top level on the left pane, and the drill-down in the right pane???????

    The tree view is to the bottom left of the file view, below the favorites.

    If I understand what you are saying, it sounds like they turned off the Navigation Pane.

    Click Start | Computer
    Click Organize, point to Layout, and make sure Navigation Pane is selected. It can be hard to tell if it's selected, so just click on it.
