    Windows Explorer

    How do you activate the 'Forward' and 'Backward' buttons when using Windows Explorer set in 'View as a Web Page'. [img]/w3timages/icons/yikes.gif[/img]

    Re: Windows Explorer

    they only work after you've moved around the file system. (just like with IE - back only works if you've moved on, forward only works if you went back)

    or are they not working at all, even after you've browsed the file system?

    Hi Mary - the forward and back arrows are not active even when I am moving from level to level within Explorer.

    Re: Windows Explorer

    Is a NEW window being opened when going to a new folder?

    If so this is why. The forward and back will work ONLY for the movements within the same window.

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

    [img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img]Hi Dave and Mary - My apology, Windows Explorer is working fine, the problem was when I was in My Documents and unable to use the Forward and Back buttons when set to 'View as a Web Page'. I have joggled with the folder settings and all is OK. Thanks for your effort.
