How to Show or Hide Details Pane in Windows 10

What is the Details Pane?

Details pane is a pane on the right side of the File Explorer. It displays information about the file or folder you selected. Information varies based on the selected item.

By default, it is not visible in the File Explorer window.

The steps to hide and show the details pane are identical. Also, remember that when you show it:

  • It replaces the preview pane if the latter is already activated.
  • It applies to every folder.

Let us look at the different ways of showing and hiding.

Method #1

On Windows 10, open the File Explorer by pressing Windows + E. Use this shortcut: Alt + Shift + P.

Method #2

Start the File Explorer.

Navigate to the View tab on the ribbon.

Click on the “Details pane” in the “Panes” section.

That’s all.
