    Hello & Happy New Year,,I have a strange problem, to me anyway. When I go to my Display Properties the tab that use to be there for the desktop like a web site is missing. I have Win98se & IE5.5. I'm probably doing something wrong but I can't find it. I try the Folder Options in the Menu but not helping.
    By the way, I really like the looks of this Board,,KEWL!!

    Go to Start>run and type regedit. Press enter. Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In the right pane look for this entry:
    NoActiveDesktopChanges

    IF you find it, delete it.

    Close the registry and reboot to have the change take effect.
