I consider myself a tech guru, but my 2 year son has finally stumped me.  I must be an idiot.  He has removed the Size column in Windows Explorer and I can't find where to put it back.  Help!

The little tyke may just have dragged the bar between the 'Size' and 'Type' column headings to the left to coincide with the bar between the 'Name' and 'Size' column headings.

Move the mouse up to the bar now between the 'Name' and 'Type' headings, watch it transform into the cross-hair mouse pointer, move it juuust to the right of the vertical bar, then drag to the right.

'Size' came back, yes?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

briancassin,
  No I mean when you are in WINDOWS EXPLORER looking at your files there are several columns:  Name, size, type etc..  My "size" is gone.

CookRe,
  I'll try that when I get home in an hour or so.  I tried it before, but had no luck.

Try pressing Ctrl+GreyPlus on keyboard
If the problem was from playing with columns it should return to normal.

All,
Nope, Not yet,
Although C0735380 solution is really cool.  (It does do a "autosize" on the column width - at least on my NT machine, on my 98 machine which has the problem is does nothing).

I tried to resize the columns manually around where "Size" column should be.  I tried clicking and dragging all around all of the header bars... still no help.  Any other ideas?
Thanks,
Troy

I just dragged the entire 'Size' column all the way to the right then pulled its' left-most seperater bar all the way to the right.  It was a real bear trying to get it back.

The little lad's name isn't Damien is it?

No, just Chase.  His pc skills are amazing.  At age 2 he can consistantly, reboot, change bios settings, and get into and play Starcraft all by himself.

Try this:

This might be a problem with the user profile on the system. Go to CONTROL PANEL and create a NEW USER. Login with that user and see if it is okay. If so, remove the last user and recreate it again. Make sure you back up all your favorites and etc from the last profile to the new one.

Found the !@#$ thing hiding to the left of the Name column.  I've tried it a dozen times, but this time I found it.  Thanks.
