Google Street View

I suddenly lost Google street view on my laptop with Vista. I drag the little guy over to a street with the blue lines and get nothing. I have no problem with my XP computer. Thanks for your help.

You're talking about Google Earth Street View, right? I'm not familiar with any little guy with blue lines. All mine has is little cameras on the streets to show there is a rotational view available. I'll have to log in and see what you mean.

I believe it is in Google Maps. When you drag out the little orange guy from the zoom slide bar, the streets and roads having street view will be outlined with blue lines.

Exactly..........and then what? If I click after dragging the guy, he disappears and so do the blue lines.

Left click and hold on the guy,hold, and drag to the spot you want to see. Release. Do not click again.

If I don't click he just sits there and still no street view. If I move the mouse he moves and still no street view.

Be aware that not all streets are visible in street view, only those with blue sidelines.

I understand how street view works since I use it on my desktop computer. The problem is with my laptop. I checked other things that others on other sites have told me I must have. Java Script, Adobe Flash Player, Active X. I'm baffled!!!! Thanks.
