When I single-click on audio files in windows explorer, the image that is supposed to show up in the preview pane instead shows up in the middle of the screen and is in the way; I can't click on it to close it, I can only get rid of it by either exiting it from the taskbar, or clicking in white space in Windows explorer. It doesn't happen if the preview pane is off, but I like having it on so I'd prefer to not have to deactivate it. I have Windows 10.

Here's a screenshot of what happens:

  • Are you saying that what is supposed to appear inside the preview pane within the Explorer window is, instead, showing up in the middle of the screen regardless of it's boundary within the Explorer window? If you're able, a screenshot would probably help illustrate better. – Dawn Benton Jan 10 '18 at 2:17
