I have gotten piggish in downloading contributed libraries.

When I try to access Examples of the built-in libraries, like Servo, they have been displaced below view at the bottom of the screen.  Is there some way to correct this?  I realize that I can go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\Servo\examples to get them.  Is there a way to get everything on the IDE?

Is there not a little arrow thingy at the bottom of the list? There is on mine, but it may be a Windows 7 thing. Drive your mouse down below the ottom of the list and see if the list scrolls.

My apoligies.  I should have mentioned that I am using a Windows 7 system.

I tried all the usual things to get it to scroll up, no luck.

No, there is no arrow or any other thing that can be used to cause the blasted thing to disgorge the needed stuff.  Dratted Bill Gates.  Actually, it think it is a oversight on the part of Arduino's IDE.

I was just hoping someone had had the same problem and figured a workaround.

Arduino Beta 1.5.6-r2 was available, but I seldom download a Beta version.  I prefer to wait for bug removal, so I took the v1.0.5.

So I downloaded 1.5.6 and ............. drumroll.............  it works.

Thanks,   LarryD
