To solve the thin Preview window problem;
 
 
SOLUTION
-------------
I've had this problem for years now, it's deeply frustrating and takes hours more of your 
valuable time to achieve anything!
 
After uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting local content and verifying cache all of 
which made no difference, I have just solved the width issue by editing the 
 
SkyrimEditorPrefs ini file found in the "Steamapps/common/skyrim" folder.
 
To edit preview window size
 
1) Make a copy of the SkyrimEditorPrefs  file and call it SkyrimEditorPrefsCOPY, just in 
case you accidentally make a hash of it (it happens), save it in the same folder so it's 
easy to find if you need it!
 
2) Open the original file and look under "General" starting at the top, down about 6-8 
inches from top of list.
 
Here is a section of the list with the bit you want to find separated out in green;
 
bBackgroundLoading=1
bRotateCameraAroundLastSelection=1
bInvertCameraPanY=1
bInvertCameraPanX=1
bInvertCameraRotationY=0
bInvertCameraRotationX=1
 
iPreviewX=644
iPreviewY=82
iPreviewW=768
iPreviewH=584
 
iPickingPreferencesH=0
iPickingPreferencesW=0
iPickingPreferencesY=0
iPickingPreferencesX=0
sPaletteFileName=
 
Copy the numbers that you see under the iPreview section above and change yours to the 
values in green. Save the file in it's original place overwrite if it asks you to.
 
The original (shown below in red) gives these figures, make sure yours is not in reverse 
order as mine was;
 
bInvertCameraPanX=1
bInvertCameraRotationY=0
bInvertCameraRotationX=1
 
iPreviewH=750
iPreviewW=158
iPreviewY=82
iPreviewX=644
 
iPickingPreferencesH=0
iPickingPreferencesW=0
iPickingPreferencesY=0
 
As you can see the iPreviewW  ( width)  is originally set to 158 which is why the box was 
so thin. I don't know why this is but assume someone at Bethesda just screwed up, it's 
the only box that can't be resized by dragging!
 
Mine works fine now after years of struggling! Hope it helps you.
