Solved Navigation Pane Customising


Posts

#1
I just did some navigation pane tidying by following tutorials.
I noticed in the screen shots how the various categories (Computer, Libraries etc.) seem nicely spaced while most, but not all, of mine are not spaced making them difficult to read when expanded.
I am unable to find a way of altering the spacing.
Any pointers appreciated.

Hello Brink,

Thanks for your response.

The "Show all folders" option was not checked, I tried checking and unchecking it, but to no avail.
What else might I include in a screenshot apart from the Navigation Pane categories to help with any diagnosis?

Out of interest and curiosity, since I installed Windows 8.1, just one time that I can recall, when I opened File Explorer, I noticed the categories were spaced as in your tutorial screenshots, but on the next opening and ever since, they have remained listed without spaces.

Regards,
Peter

I had no sooner posted my reply when File Explorer decided to space itself properly (through no action of mine.)
But how long for?

Great news. Hopefully it was just a temporary glitch from the upgrade.
