Export map - no options for details, filename..

Hi all, this morning I was exporting from ArcMap to a PNG file. Towards the bottom of the window that opens when I click "Export map..", there was a little arrow to close the detail section. The detail section apparently contains the size of the graphic, the file type, even the name.

Now that I have clicked that, it seems to be gone forever. Now when the Export map window comes up, the window only shows files within the folder, and does not show the details arrow (to re-expand the detail section), or even the filename, graphic type or graphic size (see attachment).

I have tried stretching the window around etc., and cannot locate that now hidden section. Can anyone suggest I might get it back? I have opened/closed Arcmap, no luck there.

Thank you.

ESRI technical support helped me find the solution. One has to edit the registry. Apparently its a Windows 7 bug. The technician said he would post the full solution here. Thanks for the help!

Thanks Max. Yes that was what they said. The size for that specific window reverts to zero in the registry when one clicks that arrow and then it cannot display again. Doesn't happen in XT but only in Vista and W7.

what was the work around on this? This has happened to me recently and I can not seem to resolve the issue.

Thanks.

Here is the easiest way to fix the problem.  Open the Export Map window and put your cursor in the File Name section.  Hit the Tab key 4 times to activate the Options button that is hidden (should be right after Cancel), press space bar once to expand the Option section.

Hi @Kyle Gallagher

It worked, but not completly! The options are shown again, but not "Clip To Graphic Extent". 

Any ideia ?

I used the same 4tab, space bar to see the Options for file format export....but still do not see the "Clip to Graphic Extent" either....any updates adding that check box option back in?  I am using both arcmap and arcpro....but would like to get this remedied in arcmap.

I have one foot in arcmap the other in arcpro...
