Unaccessible Windows Explorer

  arrow 16:04 18 Feb 2005

I run Windows ME on a 2001 Evesham desktop. When I click on Windows Explorer, I get My Documents and no search facility. Why and how do I revert to Explorer? Many thanks.

If you goto start,run, explorer.exe - does that bring up explorer 4 u ? If so just create a new shortcut on your desktop pointing to it

It still gives me My Documents, no change.

Right click the icon, Properties. Change what is in the Target box to

C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n,/e,C:
and click OK.

VoGtm. I did as you suggest but got the reply
'The name in the target box is not valid. Make sure the path and filename are correct.'

Have you done a search for explorer.exe to see if it is on your drive. And then create a shortcut. Right click on explorer (in the search box)and create shortcut. When it says "cannot create a shortcut here, do you want the shortcut on the desktop, click on yes.

Try Windows key plus E

Terminator. It created a new icon on desktop called Explorer 2, clicking on which produced My Docs.
Woodchip. Win+E did nothing

See if click here helps.

VoGtm. Each target field suggested results in
'The name in the target field is not valid'
