Sorry for the late update and confusion in OP as what i meant was, when i DOUBLE click the mate i dont get the vertical bar NOT when i click it ONCE as i made out to be in the OP.
but this is what i mean, when i click on a mate in the tree once i get this
when i click on edit definition i get this
on my other machine i wasn't getting this vertical bar and was wondering how to sort it out.
what i might do for future is save out my settings from this machine and load them on other machines i work on.
depending on Your settings in SE Options You either can have horizontal or vertical toolbars
If set to vertical
it looks like that
otherwise it is the small horizontal toolbar
Thanks, ill try that out.
by the way, how do i save the settings from options panel to export them out .
I only see a save option in another settings panel, which is in Customize
You could save it as a theme (which is saved in "customization") and distribute that to all workstations. But that will momentarily override any existing custom themes. So I would think it's not worth it unless your user count is very high and no users customize their menus. Unless someone knows a registry tweak. Just change the options on all the machines.
the vertical tool bar is an option if You are using the theme "Maximum Assistance"
You can use this evrywhere or create Your own theme and copy this theme from one machine to another.
I would not change the default themes, always create Your own.
