Morning all,

I have just noticed that I do not have Character Map anymore in the Start/Accessories/System Tools area.

Does someone know how I can get this back abd any reason for it not being there....very puzzled.

Thanks

Does it come up if you go to Start, Run, type

charmap

and click OK?

Morning Vog™,

Yes it does come up as you suggested. How can I create a link to this in the system tools area?

Thanks

Right click the Desktop, select New > Shortcut.

In the 'Type location of the item' type

%SystemRoot%\system32\charmap.exe

Click Next, type Character Map, click Finish.

You should now have a Character Map icon on the Desktop. Left click it and keep the mouse button pressed. Drag it to the Start button, then All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and release the mouse button.
