Hi guys,

Background:
We run a few thin client's and want to include this setting as a roaming profile so they don't have to set this setting when they move around.

I'm trying to figure out where it stores the setting "Hide/View Preview Pane"

I have tried to edited Notes.ini but its not working for us since it's only the first time it hidden

ShowPreviewCollapsedInitially=1

Our LN is quite locked so basically i'm looking for a file that we can include,

I have looked up in the
AppData\Local\Lotus\Notes\Data\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\.settings\
but not sure of what to look in for this setting

Any ideas??

I don't think Notes supports doing that.

Notes remembers the last preview pane status, and uses that for the next session. Since that value is not stored in notes.ini, it is probably stored within desktop.ndk, and cannot be changed.

so in other words if the users take the desktop.ndk with it should work.. correct?

Maybe. My desktop.ndk comment was just an assumption. Since it is not stored in notes.ini, I can't imagine anywhere else where it could/might be stored.
