Hello, I have a Millenium edition of windows. The computer is in GERMAN format. Can you please tell me how to access "my computer" as I wish to "run" a floppy disc, but cannot find "my computer" anywhere on the programmes page. A million thanks for a speedy reply.

Its been a while since I used ME but you should have "my compuer" in start menu.

Right click on that and select create shortcut or show on desktop

i use a machine running ME and there's no my computer on the start menu

It was just a thought! Like I said it has been a while since I used ME, seem to remember a link on start menu!

Yoy "may" be able to select a "my computer" icon by:

control panel/taskbar and start menu/advanced/customise. and select display my comp icon as a link

Hope this helps

its worth a try anyway

I USUALLY access comp. and am able to run floppys no bother on my ENGLISH comp. but, this bloody thing does not asppear to have a "my comp" icon or settings access at all. Come on fellas...get your thinking caps on...PLEEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE. :-)))))

what's on the disk, is it executable, if it is, then run a:\ XXXX.exe (X = named program)

Hi are half way there....I have found Zubehöre in the programmes, but there is no Fenster-Forscher.
Any more ideas? :-))))
A million thanks.
Just one more "push" will get me there mate.
