Stacking Explorer Panels
« on: June 18, 2020, 08:51:23 »
One of the things that drew me to this file handling program was I could stack two Explorer Panels. The way I use the program is I have files in one of panels and I can hit F4 or F6 to copy or move the files to the other.

Two days ago after an upgrade I found the panels side by side, not stacked, when it opened. I usually run with five or six programs open. It was convenient for me to put Multi Commander on the right side of my screen and the other programs on the left. I have been doing this for years and I hope I do not have to go back to opening two File Explore programs.

I have spent a few hours looking for a solution, but no luck. I even uninstalled the program and install a 2019 version, but no luck. I hope it is because I have been looking in the wrong place, and not because you took that feature away.

Please help.

Any change?

Thank you, I did not even need to restart it. I feel kind of dumb for not seeing that. I am happy I can continue to use the best file handling program out there.

I'd like a dollar for every obvious option I've missed  ;D
