How to Restore Web Folders

By gihayes ·
I need to restore Web Folders (a component of Microsoft Internet Explorer). They've
disapeared from my computer (Windows Explorer, File Dialog Boxes, etc.)

I have Windows
2000 Advanced Server installed (at home), and have also loaded MS Office 2000 Professional.
I have lost my web folders and don't know how to get them back. Frontpage won't open
a web without them, (In order to open a web I have to open Internet Explorer and then
use the edit button - and even then I cannot save any new pages back to the web, it
redirects me to my hard drive). I understand web folders are a component of IE but
if I try to reinstall IE (I can't uninstall cause I'm using 2000?) It doesn't list
any components, just full/minimal or custom (I've tried them all) and when it's done,
still no web folders, I've tried repairing and reinstalling Office 2000 Professional
and still no Web Folders, I've been to the Microsoft Products Update page, it says
that there are no new updates for me,except for IE 5.5 b

The WEB Folder shortcuts should be created automatically in My Network Places whenever you open resources on the servers.

So I suggest that you add some URL's to your 'Favorites' then go to the Tools menu and Synchronise and see if you have 'WebFolder' at the bottom.

You could also try the Add Network Place wizard to create shortcuts to Web servers and other computers.

I could be wayyy offbase here. I've installed the Windows 2000 server with the IIS, but not on a workstation.
What it sounds like to me though is a permission setting for the web folders because you can edit them, but not save. Have you checked the privileges for the folders you're trying to get into?
