    Default What happened to my browser window?

    I have Bibleworks 10 and have been using it and early versions for almost two decades. Something happened to the view on my Browser Window that causes great inconvenience. Normally, at the top of my Browser Window there used to be the Biblical passage being treated as well as boxes for version, book, chapter and verses, so that I could easily go to a different passage by picking each of those draw down boxes. This line has now disappeared from my browser window? How do I get it back?

    You probably clicked when your mouse was on the bar at the top of your Browse Window, the one that has the label "Browse Window". Clicking there again will bring back what you had before. (Hovering over the little down-pointing triangle at the right of that bar should bring up "Hide/Show upper part of Browse Window"). You can do the same for the Search Window and the Analysis Window.

    Unhappy Lost default Browser View

    Here is what my BibleWorks 10 Browser Window looks now:

    I want it to look like this view on p. 9 of the BibleWorks Quick-Start Guide:

    I hope this works.

    Try this:
    Main Menu
    Help
    BibleWork Help Contents
    Getting Started
    The BibleWorks User Interface

    Scroll to bottom of page to "Optimizing the Work Space"
    This explains what I tried to say in my previous response:

    Default Browser Window

    Jim,
    Thanks for your help. I learned out to get rid of the outline headers, for which I have no use, but I still cannot get back the Browser List Boxes that allows me to quickly nagigate to other versions, books, chapters and verses. When I right click, I get a list I think of recent passages I have studied. When I left click at the top, a thin gray line below either appears or disappears. This is so frustrating.

    Have you done in the menu: View | Browse Window Header | Show Browse List Boxes?

    What you need to do is right click in the thin gray line. It will bring up the menu that lets you choose to display or suppress the Outline Heading and Browse List Boxes. Yes, you have to click precisely in that thin line, else you get the recent verses you have displayed.

    I cannot get "Print Screen" to show the mouse arrow, but this illustrates what happens when you right click in the thin gray line:

    Michael, you got in ahead of me with a solution that makes lesser demands on ones fine motor skills.
