    Desktop Cleanup Wizard Option Missing

    Locked

    by chdiamo ·

    Hello, the Desktop Cleanup Wizard option has vanished! Under “Display Properties >Desktop > Customize Desktop”, the area where the option to enable or disable Desktop Cleanup Wizard is blank, no options greyed out, just an empty gray area. Does anyone know how I get the option to enable or disable the Desktop Cleanup Wizard back? Thanks for your suggestions.

      Here’s how to fix it. Click on Start, and then click on run. Type ‘regedit’ and click ok. In the menu, click on “Edit” and then “Find”. In the box, type ‘DesktopCleanup’. In ‘NoDesktopCleanupWizard’ change the value to ‘0’. That’s it!

          It’s been a while, so I hope the op has email notifications turned on.

          Maybe Windows XP has been revised, but my updated copy has a clearly visible “Display Properties>Desktop>Customize Desktop” section (at the bottom) labelled “Desktop Cleanup”. It includes a checkbox “Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days”. The checkbox responds to the mouse and keyboard (as expected!).

          The real fun comes in with registry key “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\CleanupWiz”. There are 2 DWord values: “NoRun” (appropriate values: 0 and 1) and “Days between clean up”.
