Filename column will not show

running V 5.13.1
commander window
I was narrowing the "File Name" column, but i accidentally dragged the "Date Changed" column over the "File Name" column. Now the "File Name" is gone from the remote window. I have tried to right-click in the column headings and de-select/select the "File Name" column. I tried restarting the app.
How do i get the "File Name" column to display?

Thanks

Re: Filename column will not show

Column cannot be completely hidden this way. But it can be very narrow.
If there's a "hidden" column that is too narrow between two other columns (or next to first/last column), you will see your mouse cursor to change to two vertical lines with arrows pointing left and right (as opposite to single bold line) when you hover the cursor over columns separator. Just hold down a left mouse button to resize the column back.

Or just close WinSCP, delete below registry values, and restart it:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\Commander\LocalPanel]
"DirViewParams"="..."

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Interface\Commander\RemotePanel]
"DirViewParams"="..."

Thanks Martin.
I see the cursor change to the two vertical lines with arrows. but it will not let me drag the column width. Or move it.
so i guess i will have to take your second option.
