Disappearance of hide inactive icons button

  johnhugh 06:37 02 Apr 2004

Since having to re install windows XP I have lost the use of the small button which hides the inactive icons.
I have tried the obvious right click start menu etc but although the box is ticked no hide button appears.
Any ideas.

If it's a recent install, you may need to wait a few days before it takes effect. Also when you right click the toolbar, have you chosen properties and ticked the items you want to hide all the time and the ones you want to hide when not in use? If you have done so then the PC needs 48 hours or so to see which ones your not using, then the chevron will appear on the toolbar. j.
