Sorry, can't help except to say I thought it was Ctrl or Shift+Ctrl+window
close to beat some sense into a view...
But it does provide an opportunity to say that the
inconsistencies/infelicities of of columns, column filters etc. and views
generally is a major annoyance... I was going to quote Manage Wireless
Networks as a case in point, but that looks better all of a sudden...
(though there is no choice of "View").
IMO, if a window is subject to a View you ought to be able to change that
view from a control accessible from that window without trying to find the
object's container... because sometimes they don't have them or they are not
"Customisable". (My C: drive thinks it is "Pictures & Videos"...
