    Re: Appearance tab in display properties (Windows

    Could you post a screenshot of what yours looks like, please? I'm curious as to what appears in the Themes tab, to see if changing to another theme might bring back the Appearance tab. Meanwhile, I'm off to Kelly's Korner to see if there's a possible fix listed.

    On second thought, why don't you go ahead and select another item in the Themes tab to see if it might "refresh" the whole shebang?

    Kelly does have something, but you might want to just take a look in YOUR registry to see what it says. At Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP, there is item <big>#282</big> that looks like the one you would need.

    It contains this:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionPoliciesSystem]
    "NoDispAppearancePage"=dword:00000000

    Edited: <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I'm doing a lot of editing this morning! Looking in my registry, I don't have that key AND the entry looks like it turn OFF the Appearance tab. Maybe the value needs to be set to 00000001 to turn it back on. I dunno...

    Hi

    I can't post mine, the post I made was before it was fixed, the IT guy did it in Administrative Tools, and configured it, I just wasn't sure where he went to do it.

    I wanted to know so in future I could do it myself.

    Thanks for the reply
