Dreamweaver MX 2002 - show BOTH remote and local directories

Dreamweaver MX 2002  6.0   Site Window (site view, file manager: Remote+Local views)

A client of mine is dusting off an old copy of DW to get back into DW,  and wants to view BOTH the server remote file directory and the local directory.  By default i have this set in my versions, but I didn't upgrade thru that version so i don't have it to know how to tell him to display both halves of the directory window.  I know it's been a pain for me to achieve an undocked file directory manager window (and in fact i think the window name changed in DW, and the window title is blank on the latest version, so bear with me for what i call the site directory window)

How can i tell him to view both left-right remote-local file directories.  He does not show a tiny icon in the lower left which i do in my (old)  plain MX version.

thanks

Hi willsherwood,

On the Files Panel, there should be a button on the far right with an icon that shows a small window expanding to a bigger window.  Clicking that button will show both local and remote files.

His version did indeed have an icon in the top right that did the trick.
F8 seems only to toggle display/no display of whatever the current viewing configuration is.

thanks all
