Windows Explorer missing

  Noney 23:34 19 Aug 2003

When deleting some files, I somehow wiped Windows
Explorer from the start-up menu and can't get it
back. I would be grateful for any help on getting
it restored. I am using Windows 98se.

Go to Start > Find > Files or Folders, search for explorer.exe.

When found, drag the file to your desktop using the right-button (not the left). Let go of the button when the file is over a blank part of your desktop, and a pop-up menu will appear. Choose to 'Create a shortcut here' - you will now have a shortcut to Explorer on your Desktop.

You can then do the same again - if you open Explorer from your new shortcut, and navigate to the Startup folder first(C:\Windows\Programs\Startup from memory, or something very similar)then you can drop a shortcut to Explorer into your Startup folder.

if you can't start explorer, go to Start>Run>Explorer.exe <enter>

from there check your recycle bin for the deleted shortcuts/files etc. and 'restore' them
