When I display the Projects window under BOINC 7.22.2, with 64-bit Windows 10, it does not include a Projects column showing the names for the projects.

How can I make it include a Projects column?

It displays normally for me. Is it possible that you just need to adjust the sliders (I am sure there is am actual name for them) at the top of the columns to unhide that one?

Since you mention you are running the latest client, I assume you are running the matching Manager. The Manager now has the ability to select Columns shown in the Options tool tab.

You likely have Projects un-selected. Toggle it on and it should appear.

Thanks, hadn't noticed that. Getting rid of the deadline column makes looking at all the information I want to see much easier without horizontal scrolling.

BOINC Manager 7.22.2 (x64)

The Project column was and is selected, but still not displayed.

Not enough information about sliders to try that part of the advice.

Have you closed the Manager and restarted it?

Make sure the column isn't closed. Hover with your mouse over the bar where it shows Account, Team etc. and see if you have the left&right arrows that show you can resize the bar. If you do, grab on here and move the mouse to the right, to see if your Projects column now opens. Try other places on the bar as well, in case you changed the order of things.

If you don't know, then open regedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Space Sciences Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley\BOINC Manager\Projects and make sure that the value of the Projects key called Width is more than 0; 90 (144) is a reasonable value.

In:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Space Sciences Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley\BOINC Manager

Width is REG_DWORD 0x00000168 (360).

There is no value named Projects.

I opened the window Projects, but did not see a column named Project (or one named Projects either).
