  1. Preview Pane in Explorer No Longer Working with Excel Files


    System Parameters:


    Windows 10 Pro, Version 1803 OS Build 17134.345 64 bit

    Excel for Office 365 MOS (16.0.1129_20045) 32 bit


    Issue:


    Windows/Excel recently updated. Presumably, this was done to "fix" a problem (which reminds me of when I "fixed" my pet).


    Now, when I look at a list of files in Windows Explorer, the "Preview" pane will no longer preview excel files; and if I leave the "Preview" pane open, the computer hangs.


    Need help with making the preview function of explorer work again with excel files. Any takers?

    :)

  2. preview/details pane in explorer

    Hi,

    Setting the Preview pane to show or hide in File Explorer will apply to all folders. If you wish to hide the Preview pane in File Explorer, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Tap on View tab.
    • Click Preview Pane to view/hide it.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.

    Video in the preview pane

    Aileen,

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    What I really need to know is how get the video to play in the preview pane. Prior to Windows 10, this worked wonderfully and was an asset. Now, it requires making changes to the Windows registry - not recommended due to the enormous amount of issues with
    Windows 10.

    Any other suggestions?
