    Wheres me blue bar gone :(

    Im running Xp Sp2 Pro and have always had the blue bar o the left showing the details of the current folder (ie. file size etc)

    However today it has decided to do a disappearing act and all i get is the folder contents

    However much i try i cant get it back , also i havent changed anything, its just disappeared now without even rebooting

    Cheers for any help

    Click the "Folders" button on the toolbar.

    :edit: Actually, that may be wrong, that will bring back the 'blue bar' you talk about if you can see the folder tree on the left. It will be an option on the menu, but I don't have XP at work and can't remember it.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, but I misread your question. Had the folder tree been visible, clicking the "Folder" button would remove the tree and bring back the blue bar with the options and info on it.
