Windows Explorer missing? Win 98SE

  [email protected]@m 14:36 27 Feb 2004

I can't find Windows Explorer in Programs. It's there in Registry, so maybe a value is incorrect?

What happens when you press the Windows key and "E"

Hi [email protected]@m, In Start - Programs, Windows Explorer is only a shortcut to C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE, so as long as you have the program ( I don't think Windows wil work without it, you can right click on it and create a new shortcut to put into C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs

Do you mean the shortcut on the Start menu. Explorer must still be there, Windows won't run without it.

You will need to create a new shortcut, but I cannot remember where the program is in '98. At a guess I would say C:\Windows\System, but I wait to be corrected.

Sorry Gongoozler, beat me to it.

Hi, no Windows key. Not in Accessories.

  [email protected]@m 15:21 27 Feb 2004

Start Menu, Programs, StartUp, folder is empty.

It does not go in Startup, it goes in the Start menu. Find explorer.exe, probably in C:\Windows, drag the icon to the desktop with the RIGHT mouse button, release and choose Creat shortcut here. You can then drag it anywhere you want.

I put C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE into Run, and Explorer came up. How do I make a shortcut to the Start menu?

[email protected]@m, see my earlier posting. Open Windows Explorer (or My Computer). Find C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE. Right click and select "Create shortcut". This will put a shortcut in the same folder. Right click on the shortcut and select "Cut". Now navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs, right click and select "Paste".
