    Win98 Start Menu Problem

    Help! The 'Open' and 'Explore' options normally available when I right-click on the Start button (On the Task bar) are now greyed out and unavailable to me. This is a recent problem. Any ideas on how to restore them, please?

    Did you hide any of the drives?
    This is a side affect if you did <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Win98 Start Menu Problem

    Thanks Leif for your extremely quick response to my query concerning missing options (Open & Explore) on the Win98 Start context menu; yes, I have got TweakUI, but couldn't find anything relevant to the problem. Your pointer to:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...q188209&GSSNB=1

    gave the solution immediately. Thank you very much! I have been trying to find a solution for some time.

    Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the new year.

    Thanks Dave for response to my query concerning missing options (Open & Explore) on the Win98 Start context menu; you were right about drives being hidden - Leif also mentioned this in his reply. Using TweakUI I was able to correct the problem. Thank you very much! I have been trying to find a solution for some time.

    Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the new year.
