    Save As...Dialog Boxes showing only file details...

    ...don't know why it starting happening but now all Win Save As...dialog boxes not showing file/folder contents of current locations but only details of particular file being saved.

    Edit: Turns out user had dragged DETAILS area of dialog box all the way to top of pane, obscuring the files/folder section of the dialog box. Well, that was the end anyway.

    windows 8.1

    I'm having this same problem. Can you please tell me how to fix this? I can't seem to find the "details" area of the dialog box in order to drag it back to where it should be.
