Right-click not working

  ben_webster 08:24 26 Oct 2004

This is an almightily basic problem that's driving me mad.

I've just replaced my laptop and am running XP on a desktop system. All is working well, apart from the right click>open in new window when online. Nothing happens. All other functions on the right click are working okay.

I am using McAfee Security Centre if that's relevant.

How can I get the open in new window function working again? Thank you in advance for helping.

Have you looked in folder settings to see if open in new window is selected?

Thank you for your reply.

I've just checked control panel>tools>folder options + tried checking and unchecking various options. None worked.

Did you mean a different folder settings? I'm not in the least bit au fait with computers, I'm afraid!

By complete accident, I have found that double right clicking on links opens them in a new window. Something to do with an application called nView, which I didn't realise I had(!)
