Hi all,

If I have a copy of explorer.exe on floppy and I wish to copy it to c: then what command do I have to type in dos exactly?

Many thanks, Samantha :)

Hi, would it not be better to download explorer.exe on-line direct to your pc?
I think you can do this simply by typing explorer.exe into Google.

Why do you want to copy explorer.exe? Unless its a modded version I suggest you don't copy it across due to compatability issues, ie from win 95 to win 98, they are completey different and so may put your PC in a coma.

You don't say what version of windows you are using.

That's great, thanks! I just couldn't remember the command.

PC is already in a very deep coma! This is part of a last ditch attempt to get it up and running again. :)

Thank you all, Samantha x
