I used to be able to click on the documents icon on the desktop and that would take me straight into a window where they were listed and I could scroll through to find what I wanted. Since reinstalling Word I can't do this except by going into Word and clicking on More Documents...Anyone know how to change back to the one I want???? I tried right clicking the More Documents folder for a shortcut but it won't.
Sorry....none of those work. The window I'm trying to get into from desktop is the File Open Dialogue Box where all the files are horizontal and scroll left to right.It's a small problem compared to some ...it just makes life a little easier. In the window itself is a documents icon so I thought ...yes and right clicked for the shortcut......I finished up in the other window......<sigh>
I want to click on an icon on the desktop that takes me directly into the file open dialogue box where the documents are stored and scroll left to right. Can get at it if I go to Word and click on More Documents....so why can't I go directly from the desktop? Tried everything so far and keep going back into the system folder where the documents also are. I've used this facilty on Windows 95, 98 so why not on XP?????????????
