How to get Google Earth to display elevation as I move the mouse across the screen?
nevadagary
I have Google Earth installed on two computers, but on my desktop version the elevation always reads zero. I looked in Google Earth help, and couldn't find how to change that.

Anybody know how to get it to display elevation as I move the mouse across the screen? No big deal, but it helps when trying to plot a location such as a repeater or a mountain top to know the elevation.

To see elevation you have to check "Terrain". It's the last item in the list in the "Layers" pane.

Y'er welcome.

Just tried and Ken's suggestion worked fine for me. Are you running Google Earth Pro? I don't think they support plain Google Earth anymore. The Pro version is free.
