Google Earth problem

Unread postby DEERSLAYER » Fri Apr 15, 2016 5:30 pm

For some reason Google Earth has switched over to topo view and I can't get the aerial view. I have never had this happen. I don't remember even having a topo view before. Is anybody else having this problem?

Try to turn off all the layers and see if it goes away. (If you haven't already tried that). If there is a topo overlay you should see a checkbox on the left that says USGS Quadrangles. If you uncheck that box it should go away.

Thanks Wlog. Earlier today it was still a problem, but when I logged onto the Beast I checked it and it started working properly. I'm not sure why because I did nothing different that I know of. The only difference is now it has lat & lon numbers running across the screen when zoomed out which is something I don't remember. There is also a grid across the country now.

Windows just did some updates. I wonder if that affected your settings with google earth? I know I have two different versions of google earth on my home computer simply because some of the functions I used on google earth suddenly stopped working (interconnection of Picasa and Google Earth), so I downloaded an earlier version and it had the functionality I needed. Now, I use the latest version of GE for everything EXCEPT opening my geotagged scouting photos on GE. I use the old version for that one thing. Funny thing is, I can then open my newest version and the pictures show up there now too. I will never understand computers.

I tried to get my photo's to show up and it didn't work, but I forgot what I was doing because haven't done it in a while so I figured it was just me and I was simply out of luck. Maybe I can still figure out a way to do it yet, but I do think I'm doing something wrong because I also can't bring up photo's in mytopo (free version).
