Winxp OS. When I right click on my desktop to go to properties, "NOTHING" happens. Why is this happeningandcanI fix this ?
1) It did not openRollin' Rog said:Go to Start > Run enter:
does it open?
Or how about through the Control Panel applet for Display?
If not, verify that the file desk.cpl exists in the %windir%\system32 folder -- where %windir% is your windows path.
There is a registry restriction which can hide it, but I believe you would be informed of the Administrative restriction if it were present:
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
