    Power Toys from Microsoft

    I use Microsoft Office 2000 on an NT 4.0 platform.

    I tried to download the suggested PowerToys from MS in order to 'play' with the Send To feature. However, I am only getting two files: Read Me and SendTOx.

    The MS site says there ought to be a PowerToys executable file that unzips and places different folders/programs on my desktop, inluding SentTOx...This is not happening.

    Did anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated...

    Please provide a link to the "PowerToys " file that you down loaded. I can find not NT 4.0 "PowerToys " and send to.
    Thanks,

    If you read the instructions it states"

    4. Open the folder and double-click the downloaded file. This may create several new files in your folder. Among these, look for "Read Me" or "INF" files.
    5. The "Read Me" file will contain any additional download information you need to know. To install the file, <font color=red>right click the .INF file and click Install</font color=red>

    This is what needs to be done.

    Thank you! What I wasn't reading was the right click part. Before I was just double clicking to open both and reading NotePad files. That was fine with ReadMe but the other file was the exe...Thanks again!
