FIXED Dolphin Headache

Postby DavePritchard » Thu Nov 07, 2013 6:48 pm

Using PC-Linux ( about 2010 )
I have lost the area to the left of the screen with icons for usb devices etc, also the 'back' arrow section is missing.
I am left with a small drop down menu accessed by clicking on a directory icon at top left, and a text input line, and cannot find any way to get back to the default set up.
I think this occurred because of an accidental mouse click somewhere.
Any advice most welcome.
Thanks Dave P..

The area with icons for devices is called "Places" and is turned on/off from the menus by View-Panels-Places, or toggle it with F9. I have it off myself and have only directories in my left panel.

The back arrow is on the Main Toolbar, so you need Settings-ToolbarsShown-MainToolbar.

If you cannot even see your Menu Bar, Ctrl-M should restore it. I cannot imagine why anyone would not want to see the menu bar - why this is an option. Would be like having your arms cut off.

If you have a small screen and are happy sing keyboard shortcuts, swapping the menu bar for more working space is a good trade. As you say, you can always open it with Ctrl-M when you need it.
