[Solved] Missing "Favorites" in a Windows screen

Postby Larry1700 » Tue Apr 06, 2021 4:26 pm

when I created a folder to put files into, I would automatically see a list on the left side, reading from top to bottom: Favorites; desktop; downloads; recent places; dropbox; google drive. Then Libraries, followed by: documents, music, pictures, videos. Then Homegroup. Then Computer, followed by Windows8 OS (C:); Lenovo (D:). Then Network.

I just had to re-set my Windows 10 HP laptop - but when I create a folder I do NOT see any of these categories on the left side. Can someone help this old Luddite out? Thank you

This has nothing to do with OpenOffice but I think I can help you. Near the top of the window displaying the folder's contents, click the View tab. Near the left edge of the View pane, there is an icon for Navigation Pane. Click on the the drop down menu there and select Navigation Pane.
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017
