Help? thumbnail veiwer disappeared.

Post by stonethebone1 » 2003 Oct 22, 18:13

I was trying to resize the thumbnail veiwer and it docked at the top of the window. So I tried to undock it by dragging it and it disappeared. Now I cannot get it to display at all. I tried reinstalling the program and no luck. Any suggestions.
Thanks,
Stone

I hadn't tried the thumbnail viewer feature myself, but when I did, I discovered that I could easily drop the thumb-pane far enough off the desktop to where it is irretrievable -- even knowing where it is.

The 'solution' I found was to delete the registry keys for 2xExplorer before restarting 2xExplorer.

Assuming you are familiar with REGEDIT, the steps are straightforward:
1. close 2xExplorer
2. go into the registry [START ... RUN ... REGEDIT] and delete the 2xExplorer key & all its subkeys. (found under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc ).
3. close REGEDIT
4. restart 2xExplorer

You will have to re-establish your preferred settings, but you should have the thumbnail viewer back in view.

Hope this helps
