Let's understand what is the "preview pane" in Microsoft Windows Explorer, first?

A panel/an area in Windows Explorer, where you can see the preview of selected file (especially image file’s preview). It is very useful when you want to open a specific file from many files, you can see the preview that specific file in "preview pane" and open.

See the image below

How to Turn ON/OFF preview pane?

If you are unable to see the preview of the selected files, that means "preview pane" is turned OFF, you can Turn ON or if you don’t want to see the previews you can Turn Off this features, by using following two ways:
