    Hmmm, never seen it disabled before. What if you change to something other than Windows Classic - does that enable it? I'm also curious as to what's inside your Effects and Advanced buttons.

    It's probably a group policy - if this is on your work PC, contact the network admin.

    Hi Hans

    I think it's sormewhere in gpedit.msc, but I can't find where,because the appearance tab was also greyed out, I managed to fix that, but I can't find this.

    It is on a work PC I will get Admin to check it , although I have Full Admin Rights myself.

    Thanks

    Hi Big Al

    I think Hans direction to Unable to change Visual style of Windows and buttons will do it for me.

    To answer your question if I choose something othe than Windows Classic it does not come enabled.

    I intend to try Hans suggestion on Monday.

    Thanks
